It’s a great place to grab some food and drinks from our vendors and enjoy some time with your friends and family while you watch some great sporting action. Besides the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, there will be professional volleyball, professional jetski, cornhole tournaments, live music, and much more.

In case of rain: The tournament is held under a giant tent that has room for the spectators to also get under, if needed.  Definitely come prepared to have a fun time in a unique atmosphere.

Sports Fest 2017

On Saturday, August 19th, 2017 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.

Sports Fest is a professional volleyball tournament and a professional jet-ski event that will be featured on national television.  This will just add to the excitement bring bigger and better things to the event as a whole! For more information on sports fest click: http://www.evptour.com/

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 for all and offers a ton of matches at a low price.  In fact, each competitor has the chance to compete a minimum of six times, if they compete in their respective divisions in both the gi and no gi tournaments as well as the absolute divisions.  Keep an eye out for continued updates.

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:

Weigh-in Information

Competitors can weigh-in Friday at 8:15P-9:15P OR Saturday from 8A-10A at the tournament location.  You can do either or and do not have to do both.

Competitors do NOT have to weigh-in with their gi on

Itinerary and Parking

We will start with the No Gi Advanced Money divisions.  However, we will start with all gi competitions following that, and will allow the advanced competitors time to rest.

Kids/teen gi will start immediately following the cash divisions and we will run them on their own mats.  The adults and youth will typically start with the highest belt and we will work down from there.

This same system will apply for the no-gi competitors as well.

The first matches should start at 11A and will follow the rules meeting at 1030A.

Parking

There is some construction in the parking lot.  However, there is parking to the left of the construction and behind the building.

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:

Weight Classes for Men Gi & No Gi

Adult Men (Masters class uses the same weight categories):
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

***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

135 & Under (Lightweight)
136 & Over (Middleweight)
