2023 CT State Championship
Welcome to Gaman Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championship Organization, Gaman BJJ. Well-organized tournaments where the competitor is the priority. Gaman Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championships proudly announce our next event. Our mission is to bring well-organized events with a set schedule, brackets, and times that can be checked online and in real-time, providing the best experience for competitors and spectators. We have an excellent Referee Staff with only Black Belts trained by the IBJJF.
COACHES & SCHOOL OWNERS
Coaches and Competitors should make sure that your entire team selects the right TEAM NAME. Team points are calculated based on each individual name. If your team/school has many variants, your points will not be calculated correctly by Smoothcomp. We DO NOT do any manual counting.
DATES & DEADLINES
Please, we urge all parents, coaches, and competitors to PAY ATTENTION to the deadlines. We DO NOT process any changes or cancelations past the ATHLETE CORRECTION DEADLINE.
Our goal is to run a well-organized tournament where the competitors are the priority following the schedule and match times. To do so, we ask everyone to make all changes/cancellations by the ‘Correction Deadline’.

For Gi competitions, athletes must weigh in wearing their Gis (Jacket, Pants, and Belts). The competitor will be DQ’ed if over the weight limit and a credit will be issued towards any future event.
UNIFORMS: No mismatch colors (Gi Divisions), and only White, Blue, or Black Gis will be allowed. We will follow the IBJJF standards for measurements. ( https://ibjjf.com/rules/ ). Expect to have your uniform checked.
In Gi tournaments, male athletes MUST NOT wear rash guards, braces with hard parts, or groin protection. Female competitors MUST wear a Sports Bra or Rash Guard. No T-Shirts underneath the Gi will be allowed.
In No-Gi tournaments, all athletes must wear Rash Guards and any grappling shorts (not by level).
