After a two years pause, the CBJJ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championship is going to take place again. It is scheduled for September 25 until October 3, and will be staged at Rio de Janeiro (in the “Arena de Juventude” in Deodoro).
The athletes can register to compete already. This is the first edition of the competition since the Brazilian Nationals took place in 2019, due to the fact that the 2020 season was brought to a halt because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Additionally, it’s worth remembering that this year the championship also returns to Rio de Janeiro, after nine years of waiting. In the last competition edition in Rio, the stage was the “Grajau Country Club”.
