Louisville Brazilian Jiujitsu Team Shines At Submission Only Tournament

Louisville Brazilian Jiujitsu Team at UGI

This weekend our Louisville Brazilian Jiujitsu team had some fantastic performances at the UGI grappling competition.


Last weekend 5 of our Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competitors stepped up to compete in a super match style Bjj competition. Our Louisville Brazilian Jiujitsu program here at Derby City MMA put 3 Blue Belts, 1 Brown Belt and 1 Black Belt on the mats that day.


The rules for the tournament were simple. The competitors had 6-8 minutes to submit their opponent. If neither was able to submit the other then the match was declared a draw.

During the day we had 2 submissions and 3 draws. But even the draws showed some very close attempts that nearly finished the match. Like during Patricks match where he nearly had a knee bar finish.


Here are the Brazilian Jiujitsu matches from this weekend!
