The EGJJF EUROPEAN CUP 2018 will be held on Saturday 26th May 2018
The EGJJF European Cup 2018 will be held in ‘de Maaspoorthallen’ in Den Bosch. In our 1st edition we will work with 8 mats.
We believe that in the current IBJJF ruleset leaves to much space for stalling and avoiding the fight. By appliying the JJGF’s rules, we introduce a ruleset in which stalling is severly penalized and no advantages are awarded. With this being the main difference, it’s very easy to adapt to for true Jiu-Jitsu fighters. For more info and the full rulebook, click on this DOWNLOAD.
Main differences in rulesets are (please read full rulebook carefully):
-No advantages (only points or submissions)
-Penalties on stalling
-No points are awarded for Knee on Stomach/Belly position
Great Atmosphere and Fun
Family and Friends can watch your matches from upclose in the fighting area. During the day you can refresh yourself with Acai, buy food & drinks and shop at our sponsor’s stands.
