IBJJF World BJJ Championship

The World Jiu-Jitsu Championship , also known as The Mundials or the Mundial de Jiu-Jitsu, is the most prestigious Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) tournament in the world.

International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation hosts the event in CA every year.

The first World Championship was held in 1996 at the Tijuca Tênis Clube gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It has since grown tremendously, with over 1650 competitors (including 250 foreign athletes) fighting before a crowd of over 12,000 in the 2005 championship.

Held in Brazil every year until 2007, the tournament then moved to California State University, Long Beach in Long Beach, California. This marked the first Mundial tournament ever to be held outside of Brazil. Finally, the competition has continued to prosper in California and there are a record number of entries for 2016.
