Jiu-Jitsu competition is not just to test what you’ve learned, but to assist you in improving your skills and revealing areas you need to work on.


The Competition will highlight areas where you can improve. If you are a victim of a takedown, you should improve your counter-attacks. If you cannot pass an opponent’s spider guard, you must master the art of slipping past your opponent’s defenses! Even if you’re successful, you’ll probably be able to see other areas that could be improved upon for next time.


The best way to start your journey as a competitor is by developing a BJJ Game plan. As a team it’s our purpose to support our students, with this spirit of competition and brotherhood we separate a few steps that we consider essential for your plan of action.

  1. Most important thing to do is to join Gracie Sydney Family. If you want to become a warrior you must walk with warriors!! Gracie Sydney Free Trials* are offered Monday to Friday at 11:45 am or 5:30 pm;
  2. After you start your trainings and feel confident to compete let your coach knows about your desire to compete, their help will be crucial to create your game plan**;
  3. Before any further step, it’s necessary to weight in and check the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) Weight List*** to identify in which weight class you are.
  4. With your game plan done and your weight class identified it’s time to search for a competition. One of the most well-known BJJ Events organization is Australian Federation of Brasilian Jiu Jitsu (AFBJJ), on their website you can find the AFBJJ 2023 calendar****;
  5. Next, you need to access Smoothcomp website*****, a tournament platform where you create an account, search for events that you have interest in and finally make your registration to compete. 
  6. Even though you are able to compete, you still need to train hard to be ready. This is the last but not least step, follow your BJJ program at Gracie Sydney and you will achieve everything you want, let’s go team!!!
