 A Grappling Tournament for Everyone

As always, we want all of our competitors to have as much fun as possible, so we offer a well organized tournament that is fair and offers a ton of matches at a low price. Because there is no additional cost and it is double elimination, each competitor has the chance to compete a minimum of 6 times if they did all divisions in the gi and no gi tournaments (regular divisions and absolute divisions).

There will be children’s, teens, women’s, men’s (18-30), and masters divisions (31 and above).  The weight classes for both gi and no gi will be as follows:

180 lbs. to 194.9 lbs.
195 lbs. to 209.9 lbs.
210 lbs. to 224.9 lbs.
225 lbs. & Above

***Many times there are not enough purple belt and above competitors to fill every weight class.  In that case, we will make the weight classes as even as possible

Weight Classes for Women Gi & No Gi

Adult Women:
135 & Under (Lightweight)
136 & Over (Middleweight)

Weight classes for teens will be divided at the tournament but the age brackets will be divided as follows:

WV Games 2014 Combines with Sports Fest 2014

On Saturday, August 16th, 2014 Charleston, West Virginia will, once again, host the official state Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Wrestling State Championships as part of the “West Virginia Games.” The WV Games is a huge event that takes place on Magic Island, which is located on the Kanawha River in the capital of West Virginia and offers a scenic backdrop to a flurry of athletic competitions and events.  This is a family friendly event and we encourage all of our competitors to bring their friends and families so they can enjoy all of the other events and activities during the tournament.

Besides the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Wrestling State Championships, the WV Games will also feature several family friendly sporting events from all around the state and country.   With the addition of our numerous vendors and activities, we feel that this is an event that everyone should try and make part of their schedule because it is very rare that you can keep the entire family entertained while waiting for your chance to hit the mats.

There will be children’s, teens, women’s, masters, and men’s divisions and the weight classes for both gi and no gi will be as follows:

Adult Men: 149.9 & Below 150 lbs. to 164.9 lbs. 165 lbs. to 179.9 lbs. 180 lbs. to 194.9 lbs. 195 lbs. to 209.9 lbs. 210 lbs. to 224.9 lbs. 225 lbs. & Above
