NEW BRACKET SYSTEM
We are working on a new bracketing system that will provide kids with more matches.
Our brackets are designed to provide 2 or more matches for willing participants in their divisions.
When brackets have 2 competitors, they will compete in a best 2 out of 3 to determine the champion.
For brackets of 3 competitors, they will compete in a true round robin and the champion will be determined by the number and types of wins.
For brackets of 4 or more competitors, there will be 2 or more matches for each competitor.
No more 1 and done!
Masters & Instructors
Get on the tour & win cash prizes!
By having your students compete in the BJJ Tour Series you, as an owner/instructor, will also benefit by having the opportunity to win cash prizes! At each BJJ Tour event we rank the top schools based upon the number of students and number of wins in that specific tournament. The top school will win a prize of $1,800* for kids and adults. At the end of the year we will tally up the entire series and award the top schools for a chance to win an additional $1,000 for kids & $1,000 for adults!
We are also creating a ranking system of individuals and schools for historical purposes. Showcase your school, increase your student sign-ups, and build your academy by competing in the BJJ Tour!
TEACHERS & ACADEMY OWNERS: Prize for FIRST, SECOND and THIRD PLACES in the ADULTS and KIDS DIVISIONS.
*Payment to be a combination of $1,000 in cash and $800 in Sambazon products.
