GG Frequently Asked Questions
You'll notice that divisions are not organized by belt because we welcome submission grapplers from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Gracie Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Wrestling, et al. Review our rules page and pay careful attention to the allowed submissions in each division. Pick the division that you're most comfortable challenging yourself in.
While you're welcome to treat it as such, we do have a very specific way of calculating points which is not the same IBJJF, NAGA, Fuji, etc. Our Rules page outlines the details. Basically, our rules are designed to allow grapplers to test themselves competition without compromising on their street and combat readiness.
Each tournament date is different. We intend to visit each location on our circuit 3x per year. One or two will be Gi, and one or two will be No Gi. Visit our Upcoming Events page to see tournament dates, locations, and types.
There are cash prizes for Men's Absolute, Women's Absolute, and for the Top-Scoring Academy. The prizes are calculated on a sliding scale based on total even registrations. Prizes for each of the three mention start at $500 and cap at $3,000 EACH. For more info, click below to see how it works.
In order for coaches to enter an event without paying admission, each coach will need to register in advance to ensure that he/she is on the will-call list to get free admission. It does not cost coaches to register for this benefit, but you MUST register and have your registration approved 1 week prior to the event. Registered coaches will also qualify for our complimentary coaches' lounge access with free refreshments.
The Objective Zero Foundation enhances social connectedness and access to wellness and mental health resources to combat suicide within the military and veteran community, which includes service members, veterans, their families, and caregivers. We use an upstream approach to suicide prevention, connecting our users to volunteer peer and civilian support Pathfinders and to a variety of resources from yoga and meditation to free or low cost mental health care.
Gis for G.I.s
Founded in 2015, Gis 4 GIs objective is to help active duty military members, veterans, and first responders (Oath Takers) cope with the stress of their respective jobs. Our organization sends Gis (traditional martial arts uniforms) to those that have taken the oath to protect us. These Gis allow servicemen and servicewomen to begin and/or continue their martial arts journey.
