It’s July, time for the annual Martial Arts Supershow, one of our favorite and one of the largest events in the MMA industry! Here’s what you need to know for 2017:
March Madness is here! While some people are going crazy over the NCAA tournament, we are getting geared up for the Pan Jiu-Jitsu IBJJF Championship in Irvine, CA. This is one of the largest U.S. gatherings of Jiu Jitsu amateurs and professionals each year. As one of the sponsors for the event, the Zebra Athletics team will be there, so keep a look out for some familiar faces (including one well known Jiu Jitsu celebrity!).
When you are attending an event, have you ever stopped and really looked around to see who and what is there? At a typical Martial Arts event, you have the competition going on, but there are also booths and exhibits set up for food, clothing and equipment.
Why are they there? Where did they come from? What are they trying to accomplish? Most importantly, how do you become one? I recently returned from a Martial Arts competition in Las Vegas. As with most events, the competitors were focused and the spectators were busy checking everything out and enjoying themselves. But what is it like for those working the exhibit area? Let’s take a look at what typical events and competitions are like for the person behind the booth.
