The TBA Classic is the largest amateur Muay Thai tournament in America. We’re talking 600 fighters and too many schools to name. The TBA Classic saw its popularity spike last year and because of this they are holding a second tournament.
Some of the biggest news coming from the folks at the TBA Classic is that Jiu Jitsu will be added to the tournament.
“This will be our second year and due to the number of gyms that attend who also have Jiu Jitsu, we decided to include a grappling division to truly make this a unique event for Martial Artists.” Event Coordinator, Pam Alspach-Peterson.
Here are pictures from last year’s TBA Classic. This years photos will include Jiu Jitsu, and thats awesome!
