Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I register for an account?
There are several benefits to creating an account. First, you can opt in for email updates any time an event is listed in your area. Secondly, having an account will allow you to save events to your calendar and map to better keep track of all of the events that you plan on attending. Other than these, we have more functions to add to the site in the future as it grows to help you as a competitor manage your training and competition schedule.
Will my personal information be used or sold?
Nope. Having an account simply allows you to better use the site. Your personal information is safe and protected.
I live outside of North America. Can I still register?
For sure! We are dedicated to listing tournaments and Jiu-Jitsu events around the world.
Why are there advertisements on the website?
We started Jiu-Jitsu Calendar as a service for the BJJ community. As you might expect, running a website comes with certain costs. When you click on an ad on this site, we receive a small sum of many from the advertisers for connecting you to their products/services. We use this money to cover the operating expenses of the website so we can continue to provide this great site to all competitors for free.
What if I know about and event that is not listed here?
We strive to have as complete a listing as possible of all Jiu-Jitsu events. If you know about an event that is not listed here, please click on the Submit an Event link above, register for a free account, and submit the event. This only takes a few moments and supports the whole Jiu-Jitsu community!
I am a promoter whose events are listed. I would like to edit some of the information in my listings. Can I add or edit my own events? How do I do this?
We are working on this feature now. In the mean time you can contact us by clicking on the Contact link above, with the updated information and we will update the listing for you. If you would like to feature this event on our website, be sure to let us know and we will contact you with the details.
Where do the ratings for events come from?
We provide the ability for all of our users to rate tournaments and events that they have attended so that others in the community will know more about the events. We make every effort to moderate these ratings, however we do not remove any rating unless it violates the usage policies of our website. You can view these policies by clicking on the Policies link, under the About link above.
What are featured events?
Featured events are those events that promoters have paid to have more prominently displayed on this website. All promoters have the right to have their events promoted. To have an event featured on this website, click on the Submit an Event link above to find out how.
