IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Charity Day

IBJJF is proud to announce the 2018 Jiu-Jitsu Charity Day (JJCD) and we are inviting you, the community, to join in our efforts to make the world a better place through the power of Jiu-Jitsu.

The 2018 JJCD will occur in conjunction with the 2018 Kids International IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship and Long Beach International Open IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship where there will be a number of charitable drives. The net profits from both tournaments along with the proceeds from the various charity drives will be donated to UNICEF.

The following drives and events will take place during the 2018 Jiu-Jitsu Charity Day:

Food Drive – Los Angeles Food Bank

  • IBJJF is asking all athletes to donate one pound of nonperishable food in exchange for the event t-shirt. All academies are welcome, and encouraged, to organize food drives as well in order to gather much more than a pound per athlete! Click here for suggestions on the best food items to be donated.
