University BJJ

UK University League


The UKBJJA is coordinating a university wide competition league for all current student and staff at UK universities. Individuals can compete for their institution at annual events and at the end of the year the university team topping the league will win a prize, as will the top individual male and female athlete in the individual university league rankings.

We will aim to run two competitions a year in autumn and spring semester, with as many divisions as possible for all belts, gi and no gi. Points will be allocated according to the criteria applied in the UKBJJA national rankings here.

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.

The first event for 2017 is due to be held at the University of Nottingham on March 11, 2017. There are some great prizes on offr and  t-shirts with a Meerkatsu design. Registration is soon so check the event page.

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 to do the the UKBJJA referee theory course and exam for free and also receive training regarding table work and running a bracket prior to the event with the agreement that you then work unpaid at the event for a few hours. If you are interested in attending this on February 7th please fill in this registration form.
