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 $1,000. 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!
