On Saturday, August 15th, 2015 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.

Testimonials

My daughter competed in her second tournament at the WV Grappling Open on 3/23/13. She had a great time. She had a couple of tough matches that helped her understand just how tough she really is. She is a student of Jeb Tonkin, at Ground Zero in Bridgeport. I wanted to say thank you for the opportunity for her to find out something about herself.
