2016 Tokyo Grand Slam Preview
Ending 2016 with a bang at one of the most prestigious events on the IJF circuit, the Tokyo Grand Slam in Japan. From December 2nd through December 4th, the world's top athletes will come together and compete in the last event of the 2016 competition season.
With 46 countries and 337 competitors fighting, these will no doubt be one of the most exciting events of the year (next to the Olympics of course!).

On the men's side, 2016 US Olympians Colton Brown (-90kg) and Nick Delpopolo (-81kg) will be competing along with up and comer Jack Hatton (-81kg). 2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist and 2016 Olympian Marti Malloy will be the only women competing for Team USA.
