Want to stay up to date on upcoming events?  Email me at and I will enter you into our email list (you will not be spammed).

Also, rules have changed this year.  Please see for the current rules.  Some adjustments will be made, please see the rules section  for any exceptions to the ibjjf rules.

Lastly, to offer a more equal playing field we will be separating the No Gi Championship division into two separate divisions.  One for Recreational people and new competitors and a division for those wishing to compete for the Championship belt.  We hope this will encourage new people to come out and get some experience with our double elimination tournament and challenge the advanced people with a single elimination Championship tournament.

Good luck to all competitors and please feel free to email: with any questions.

Mike Yackulic

Tournament Director

    Hey Mike,

    Will there be an email sent out for the location of the Calgary tournament? I see the date has moved to March 17th… Do I need to keep checking back or will I get a notification once a location is set?

    • February 29, 2012 11:10 am

      Yes an email will be sent out later this week for the Calgary Series. I will update the location this week as well. It will be in Calgary this time.

    hi mike I am interested to being entered into you email list and receive all the updates for the kids divisions and a I want ask you a very intersting question: do you think a belt would be a possibility for the kids winner or will it stay the same medals as every year? do you think there is something we could do about kids small belts because I saw one in independant MMA in calgary and they are vey cool, if the cost of the belt is more you could probably increase the entrance fee.
    Thank you so much, have a great night

    • February 22, 2013 5:24 pm

      Do you know where the belts where bought at?

      I am interested
