Tyler, Tx (KETK) — Over 100 of the best Jiu-Jitsu competitors from East Texas, Louisiana and even further came out to Smith's Lone Star Event Center Saturday for the 4th Annual "East Texas Gracie Regional Tournament".
Drew Arthur from Lone Star MMA Gym has been organizing the event the last few years.
He says he's proud of how the sport has grown, and how inclusive it's become.
It's not just 20-something males competing.
Boys and girls as young as 6 were on the mat.
