The IBJJF held its first edition of its Black Belt League series this last weekend.
The purpose of the event is to take the highest ranked IBJJF black belt competitors and match them against each other in four weight categories.
First place winners receive $5,000 and second place receives $1,000. This is a great effort by the IBJJF to help professionalize the sport. Hopefully over time, the purses can grow and the sport with it.
