The World Jiu-Jitsu Championship (commonly known as Mundials) is an annual Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) tournament organised by the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF). It is regarded by some as the toughest and the most prestigious Gi tournament in the world. The first World Jiu-Jitsu Championship known as Mundial de Jiu Jitsu took place in February 1996 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 2007 the tournament moved to the US, taking place every year since then in California.

History

The first World Championship was held in 1996 at the Tijuca Tênis Clube gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The first Mundial tournament to be held outside of Brazil was in 2007 at the California State University in Long Beach, California. The Championship has been held in California ever since.[2] Many considered the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship as the toughest and the most prestigious Gi tournament in the world.[3][4]
