For some time I have held that the very best place on the internet to find information about Brazilian jiu-jitsu and grappling competitions was on The founder of, Chris Shorrock is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner in Vancouver and created icompete in 2006 as a side project from his normal programming duties, not knowing it would become so popular.

In the years since iCompete’s introduction, he and I have kept in touch on and off. Chris’ responsibilities at home and office have grown, and he is now understandably unable to maintain iCompete.

I asked Chris if I might take over the domain, and he agreed, knowing that the site has become a reference for the Brazilian jiu-jitsu community online. So, here’s the deal:

While iCompete is no longer running on the same software that it did originally, will still announce all the upcoming BJJ and grappling tournaments out there! I will update it whenever I hear of a new BJJ or grappling event anywhere in the world. The best way for you to keep up with everything that’s posted there is to sign up for the site’s news to be delivered to your email inbox or by way of its RSS feed. (And yes, it even has its own Twitter account).


Many thanks to Chris Shorrock for his efforts with iCompete, and we wish him all the best in the future. In the meantime, if you know of a Brazilian jiu-jitsu or grappling tournament, please add it to the site!
