The Road to Challenge of Champions 41

by Keith Gehshan

Challenge of Champions 41 will he held on Sunday, December 11th at the NJ Convention and Expo Center in Edison NJ. Building on the success and feedback from this past June’s Challenge of Champions event, we have decided to kick off the event preparation and registration earlier than ever, starting with the tournament tryout held in our schools.
Majority of the Tiger Schulmann’s locations are holding tournament tryouts, so ask your instructor for details.
An early start in your tournament preparation will give you your best chance at success on mat.
We are also excited to announce our newly expanded division groupings, which have been increased from 3 to 4 separate experience levels, for Challenge of Champions 41:  

  • BEGINNER: White to Hi Blue Belt
  • INTERMEDIATE: Lo Yellow to Hi Green
  • ADVANCED: Lo Red to Hi Brown
  • EXPERT: Black Belts
  • 35 years old & up BEG to INT: White to Hi Yellow
  • 35 years old & up INT to ADV: Lo Green to Black

These new division belt groupings represent a 33% increase in the total number of divisions, which will help ensure that each competitor has the opportunity to compete with others as close to their experience level as possible. Registration for Challenge of Champions 41 will only be available via paper application at your Tiger Schulmann’s Location.
Remember that “Every Challenge Makes Me Stronger”. It’s nice to win a medal but this is about challenging yourself. Just having the courage to do it makes you a winner. This is your chance to test everything you’ve learned training and compete with people you’ve never sparred with. Win or lose, you will learn and grow.
