Jiu Jitsu Tournaments San Diego

Jiu Jitsu Competition helps take students to the next level. Jiu Jitsu Tournaments help shape and sharpen the mindset of the competitor. Our Mixed Martial Arts Academy supports students competing in BJJ tourney’s by preparing, encouraging and cheering the student’s efforts.

Congrats to our Excel athletes on doing an awesome job representing the Art of Jiu Jitsu and stepping up and putting it on the line, win or lose, for the whole world to see. This experience will build you up tremendously.

BJJ Tourney’s help grow confidence

Everyone that competes gets that feeling and experience of winning and losing. Both winning and losing are important for growth. The winning mindset is what we are after.

Once the athlete gains confidence in their game plan and strategy preparation, it’s time to test the mettle against other Jiu Jitsu Martial Artists, from other Academies, in a timed match.

After the tournament, it’s back to the drawing board, win or lose, to get ready for the next tournament. It is a great learning experience for everyone. It’s also great for family, friends, coaches and teammates to cheer and support.

Our athletes Excel

Jiu Jitsu Athletes get to compete against people they have never met before in a timed match and with certain rules. We make sure in Game Plan development, that our style of Jiu Jitsu can match all styles of Jiu Jitsu, no matter who we are facing.
