My son does wrestling and jiu-jitsu. I do not understand jiu-jitsu tournament they cost close to 100 dollars and they only get one match per division. I wouldn’t mind the money if they were run like wrestling tournaments.July 19, 2015 at 4:43 pm #1647323
You must be referring to Ibjjf tournaments.
Most local tournament are double eliminate so kids are guaranteed 2 matches and generally cost less.July 19, 2015 at 5:27 pm #1647324
Naga and fuji formally kozen tournaments. Both had 2 man brackets with winner getting gold and looser getting silver. It just seems like I’m the only one that has a problem with this. I asked the people at fuji they said it’s for safety reasons (then don’t have divisions for kids). Just wish the bjj people running these tournaments would got to a Rocky Mountain national wrestling tournament and see how a grappling tournament should be doneJuly 19, 2015 at 5:29 pm #1647325
NAGA is awful. Just in generalJuly 19, 2015 at 5:48 pm #1647326
Seems like they just want your money.August 5, 2015 at 3:47 pm #1647327
I really appreciate this post Mom. I’m the Director of Grappling for USA Wrestling in California. I’m working to do something about this. I love the vibe at the bjj tournaments, but would like to have them run more like wrestling tournaments. Additionally I believe that wrestlers learn a ton from the problem solving involved with bjj…counter to this bjj could benefit from the toughness of the wrestling grind.We are hosting a tournament in Santa Monica that has both a wrestling and grappling. Please help spread the word.Blair.August 8, 2015 at 10:21 pm #1647328

Not a mom. I’m from Kentucky. Wrestling wasn’t at my school. It’s all a learning experience for me. I have learned a lot and help coach him. He does well
