We are happy to help our members participate in IBJJF competitions under BJJ Globetrotters. In order for us to approve your IBJJF membership, please follow this procedure:
- Don’t do everything last minute, the process takes a little time :)
- Make sure you’re signed up and approved as individual member of BJJ Globetrotters.
- Send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org together with proof of your rank: Photos/video of promotion, photos/screenshots of competition results, diplomas, anything you can gather.
- If IBJJF membership is required for you: Sign up with either “BJJ Globetrotters” or “BJJ Globetrotters USA” and select “Christian Graugart” or “Jeston Pages” as professor. Download the IBJJF membership form and include it in the email for us.
- Have the person who promoted you send a message to our Facebook Page and verify your rank. For black belts, you need additional FOUR black belts with active Facebook profiles to message us and verify your rank. White belts do not need verification of rank.
- We will return to you as soon as possible. If we approve your application, you can go ahead and sign up for the competition. We will sign and return your form if needed. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
