What is the most competitive BJJ tournament in the world and in the U.S.?
Competitive in what way? Highest level athletes? Most prestige? I would say that ADCC, Pan Am, and IBJFF Worlds would all be up there.
I think IBJFF is the largest but I don't think any really hold prestige over the others. You'll see top level players competing in multiple ones.
That's what I was looking for. Thanks.
There are also a lot of "pro" invitations popping up. Metamoris, Submission Underground, etc. High level stuff. I like the EBI ruleset.
Yep. I didn't mention those because the OP asked about the most prestigious. Since those you mentioned are somewhat new, and oftentimes are having trouble filling their cards, I didn't quite see them in that light. I hope they grow as I like the submission only idea. I'm also curious to see what the JJGF does not that they are up and running. Rickson mentioned tweaks to IBJJF rulesets, but I am not sure exactly what he was getting at.
Cbjjf in Brazil, ibjjf and adcc. Pop up events just pick fighters and have too many 20 min snooze fest draws
In the BJJ community, it's the IBJJF Worlds for prestige. You're not considered a "World Champion" until you've won the Worlds in Long Beach. For Nogi, ADCC, not to be confused with UAEJJF Abu Dhabi Pro, is the most prestigious.
I hope this grows in a very big way.
