About the Program

The goal of Circle of Iron BJJ is about more than just running a great tournament. Our goal is to truly advance and have an impact on the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the Midwest! As Jiu Jitsu practitioners ourselves, we are committed to running the best tournaments and providing unique opportunities for all of our fans and out competitors.

We applaud the parents, grandparents, etc. that have enrolled their children in a BJJ program. There is no doubt that the life lessons learned while training will enable each of them to excel in their own futures. Jiu Jitsu is about more than the training itself though. In order to really excel and to learn the techniques it is important that everyone competes and tests their knowledge on the mats. It is these experiences that truly make a difference in your abilities whether you are an adult or a youth.

We also understand that sometimes spending the extra $40 for the entrance fees is sometimes difficult and this is where we strive to make a difference! Because of the generosity of our sponsors below, we are able to sponsor several youth for each of our events. These young competitors receive free entrance into the event and thus get to gain the invaluable competition experience.

How To Apply

To receive a sponsorship is simple. All we ask is that you fill out the form below and have your young competitor complete a short 250 word essay (with parental assistance if needed) that explains what Jiu Jitsu means to them and why they like it.

We will review all of the submissions and based on the amount of sponsorship will select a number of winners. These winners will be contacted via email with instructions on how to register for free.
