A great announcement!
We have overstock in kurtki (sambo jackets) and will be giving away free kurkti to same day registrants at our October 5th North American Freestyle Sambo Champioships in Rahway, NJ. We have approximately 50 jackets we will be unloading (no belts). Most are size 3 and 4. We have a few size 5 and 6. If you hope to get a free jacket and compete, DON'T forget to bring a belt!
It will be first come first serve until they are all given away. In order to get a free jacket, you must not have a kurtka of your own and must register to participate in the tournament.

Ok, now I feel I have to compete. If I bring a belt & shorts, what color should they be to match the jacket? Or will you have them for sale at the event? Any advice on wrestling shoes?

Don't worry about the color of the shorts. Any wrestling shoes would be fine.
Glad you will come down!!
