BJJ in Universities 2

UKBJJA University BJJ League

The UKBJJA is co-ordinating a university wide university league for all currents 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. If you are in any doubt or or the only person at your university doing BJJ then get in touch.

The first event is due to be held at the University of Nottingham on March 12, 2016. There are some great prizes on offer from Saviour Tea and Tataim, cool medals, and  t-shirts. Registration will be open soon so watch this space!
