IBJJF Announces Cash Prize for 2019 Brasileiros

For the first time ever the IBJJF will award cash prizes in one of their “major” tournaments. 

Black belt male and female champions at the Brazilian National Championships will earn cash prizes that vary depending on how many competitors sign up for their division. 

The IBJJF has offered cash prizes in a number of events, notably the BJJ Pro series and the annual Grand Prixs. Also, at the end of the season the top-ranked black belt athletes are awarded sums of money. 

This is the first time that the IBJJF has offered a cash prize at one of their four “major” events, which are the European, Pan, Brazilian National and World Championships. 

The prizes range from between R$5000-8000 (approx US$1300-2000) for black belt division champions, with the amount won depending on how many athletes are in their bracket. The prize for the absolute division winner ranges from R$7000-10000 (approx US$1800-2300). The prizes offered for men and women are the same. Silver medalists also get a cash reward.
