Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) World Champion Brings Tournament to Colorado Springs

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu legend Carlos Santos says hundreds of fighters will hit the mats in March at Colorado’s very first BJJ World Super Cup in Colorado Springs.  BJJ is one of the fastest growing sports in the world with over 100 BJJ clubs in Colorado. 



Santos says the Colorado BJJ Super Cup will draw competitors from all over the United States. The event features weight categories for 7-year olds through adults at all levels from beginner to master. The competition is open to all BJJ fighters, clubs and teams. Medals and championship belts will be awarded to winning athletes.



Registration is now open for The Colorado BJJ Super Cup. The event takes place Saturday, March 30 starting at 9am at Coronado High School in Colorado Springs.



BJJ is a martial art created by the Gracie Family in Brazil in the early 1900s.  BJJ stands apart from other martial arts because the majority of the “fight” takes place on the ground.


Carlos Santos is from Brazil. He is a 3rd degree BJJ black belt with 3 world championship titles. Santos was head coach of the UAE BJJ National Team in

Abu Dhabi, UAE.  Santos, along with Brazilian countryman Marcello Motta (2nd degree BJJ Black Belt) own and operate Prime BJJ in Colorado Springs.
