Welcome to the EGJJF Grappling Open Beginners Only. A double-elimination tournament open to all beginner grapplers!

European Grappling & Jiu-Jitsu federation is organising her first EGJJF Grappling Open Beginners Only tournament. The focus of this tournament lies on getting more experience for the fighters by applying a double-elimination format. The rules favour the fighter who is eager to submit, a format which proved to be successful in the prestigious Rickson Gracie Cup and EGJJF European Cup.

The tournament is held in a smaller setting, where fighters, friends and coaches can interact in a way that everybody is comfortable. With a maximum amount of 100 competitors, we will guarantee great matches, great chances to win prizes and a great opportunity to learn!
