This is it! The big one is on the way. And for the first time in history, the BJJ World Championships (or Mundials) will be held in the United States! The International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation decided it was time to take this unique event outside Brazil to share the exposure of high level competition, and decided upon August 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th in California State University Long Beach. I cannot wait!
Here’s the order of competition that weekend:
- Thursday: Blue Belt Juvenile and Adult
- Friday: Blue, Purple, and Brown Belt Adults
- Saturday: Purple, Brown and Black Belt Adults
- Sunday: Black Belt Adults
