Our aim is to make these events as affordable as possible for all students to compete. In order to be eligible to compete individuals do have to be members of the UKBJJA and we would also ask that your university club joins as a club member. Details on joining up can be found on our membership pages. If you are in any doubt or or the only person at your university doing BJJ then get in touch.
This year's event is due to be held at the University of Nottingham on March 11, 2017. There are some great prizes on offer for winners of the divisions, and a prize of £150 investment for the top university team, as well as a prize for most stylish fighter. You also have the chance to get qualifications and gain experience in refereeing or organising a competition at the Nottingham event. We are offering university students and staff the chance to receive training for table work and running a bracket, as well as running a competition.
