Team Chard IBJJF Medalists

IBJJF Events represent the highest level of competition in our sport. Four major events are held annually with the GI: The European Open, The Pan, The Brazilian Nationals, and The Worlds (aka Mundials). Two are held for No Gi: The No Gi Pan and The No Gi Worlds. Additionally, throughout the year, they sponsor a number of Internationals around the world. To compete at this level is the ultimate challenge. To win is the ultimate accomplishment.
