IBJJF World Jiu-Jitsu No-Gi Championship (7-10 October 2021)
The IBJJF World No-Gi Championships are set to take place from October 7-10 at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas.
With this being the first no-gi world championships in which heel hooks are allowed in the brown and black belt divisions, will we see a new generation of world champions? Or are the veterans prepared to deal with the tricky leg lock game that has recently revolutionized the competitive grappling scene?
There are a ton of big names already registered. At the time of this writing, capacity for the event is at 96%, meaning registration will likely fill up before tournament time.
