There are pros and cons to any competitive format and jiu jitsu is no exception. BJJ is still a young and growing sport with a bright future and one thing is certain, tournaments, scrimmages, and super fight style events are bringing awareness to this sport with public viewing and family style events.
One way we can create a positive jiu jtsu competition is by hosting BJJ Scrimmages which were created to mitigate bad tournament experiences and help beginners (or non-competitive daily practitioners) the opportunity to test themselves on the mats. Nova has hosted a number of these scrimmages and the BJJ community loves them.
