Can i compete in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

If you’re interested in competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or submission grappling there are a multitude of opportunities. The most prestigious gi title is probably the Mundials, (followed closely by the Pans) both yearly tournaments hosted by the IBJJF in California, and considered to be the World Championships of BJJ.

There are also major tournaments like the ADCC, which holds qualifier tournaments around the world and then flies the winners to compete in the UAE. There are tournament circuits including NAGA, Grappler’s Quest, and 5, as well as countless smaller regional tournaments.

No mater your age, size or skill level there are plenty of opportunities to compete in BJJ, locally, nationally, and internationally. You could probably fight each weekend all year long if you wanted to.

One of the great things about competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is that the superstars of the sport compete at the same tournaments as you do. You’ll be bumping elbows with (and maybe even sharing the mats with!) world champions and new grapplers alike.
