Montreal Jui Jitsu tourament moved due to police crackdown on "prizefighting"

Post by InfinityLens on Fri Mar 10, 2017 8:38 am

Montreal was supposed to host the Canadian championship of Brazilian jiu-jitsu over the weekend, but the event was postponed after it was declared illegal.

The competition was supposed to take place at the Pierre-Charbonneau Centre, near the Olympic Stadium. But the group's Facebook page said that it decided to cancel the event Friday evening — for the first time in nine years — after Montreal police (SPVM) threatened to make arrests.
