BJJ Globetrotters is not a BJJ affiliation in the traditional sense
Instead of the classic lineage/hierarchical structure, we are a de-centralized affiliation working in a flat structure with no “head instructor” to follow. Think of us more as a large community of like-minded people from around the world who are helping each other out with training, traveling, meeting people and maybe even belt promotions. We provide a framework for people to connect and build healthy relationships based on friendship, training and mutual respect, regardless of belt rank. It is, and always will be, 100% free to be part of our BJJ affiliation.
The requirements for the affiliated academies are few and simple:
- Understand, follow and spread the values of BJJ Globetrotters
- Welcome anyone to come train, regardless of affiliation, academy etc.
- Never deny members to go train somewhere else
- Offer at least one week of free training for traveling BJJ Globetrotters members
If you own an academy (or even a small training group) and is interested in becoming a part of BJJ Globetrotters, please email us at [email protected] and include a short description of your place, a link to your website/social media and a logo.
