      Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport and self defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting techniques; the discipline was designed to teach a smaller, weaker individual to properly defend against a larger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique. Some of these techniques include the use of joint locks, chokes and sweeps, amongst others. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and submission grappling have become increasingly popular over the 15 years since its intoduction to North America through a competitive setting. The Sunflower State Games and Topeka Jiu Jitsu welcome all grapplers and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners to participate in this event for only the fourth time in Topeka, Kansas.
      • IBJJF rules will be used. Click here to download and print the official 2015 IBJJF Rules. It is the responsibility of ALL participants to understand these rules. A brief Q & A session pertaining to the rules will take place prior to competition.
      • Additional Rules: Groin protectors and mouth pieces are optional
      • Event Divisions may be combined or broken down further depending upon the number of competitors in each class; i.e. Purple, Brown and Black belts combined due to lack of competitors in a specific weight class.
      • Juveniles (Kids & Teen): Both Gi and No-Gi divisions will be in accordance with posted rules, but some divisions may be combined depending upon the number of competitors in each class and competitor weight. Male and female juveniles may be combined if competing in similar age and experience divisions.
      • Heavier Kids/Teens may be moved up into higher age divisions if they are significantly heavier than those in their age brackets.
      • NO SANDBAGGING: All competitors must compete within their rank or experience levels to ensure fair competition and promote safety within the event.
      • Male and Female No-Gi by Experience: Beginner is defined as one year or less (does not include experienced wrestlers), Intermediate is defined as 1-3 years experience or Blue belt, Advanced is defined as 3 years experience or Purple belt and above.
      • Medals will be awarded to top three competitors in each age division/weight class.
      • Age determination date is July 25, 2015.


      There will be a team trophy awarded to the team with the highest combined point total (adult and juvenile combined score). Scale: Gold = 9 points, Silver = 3 points, Bronze = 1 point. The overall team points and trophy will be awarded to the ACADEMY with the highest point total. Points will be given to the academy only, not the association or affiliation that it is under. Point totals will not be combined between academies that reside under the same association. If a participant is caught representing a School that is not their own in an attempt to accumulate more team points, they may be disqualified from the competition.
