The 2017 IBJJF San Diego Open took place on May 13, 2017. Despite many of Jiu Jitsu’s main tournaments being held in Southern California, this was the IBJJF’s first trip to San Diego. The tournament drew a slew of top competitors as many of them are based in the area. This was also one of the last IBJJF tournaments before the Mundials, giving competitors one last opportunity to sharpen their games before the biggest tournament of the year. Congratulations to the below GD Jiu Jitsu competitors who were able to place in their respective divisions:
