BJJ Competitions Banned . . . Come on Canada
If there was a BJJ tournament in your area that had no winners, no losers, and no medals. . . would you participate in it? Do you think it would even be worth doing? Would you go through all the hard training to prepare for it?
This is the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu question that was thrown to me recently on Instagram.
Our friend who lives in a particular part of Canada where prize fighting was banned. And it just so happens that Brazilian Jiujitsu competitions were classified as prize fighting.
After the law was passed a BJJ tournament was held. And during this BJJ competition. No medals were given, no hands raised and no podium was stepped on to determine a winner.
The questions asked from our friend were. . .
Are medals a big deal? And should be people feel grateful for having a some sort of tournament in their area?
Now I don’t know all of the details of this situation. But I interpreted this as there were no winners and losers.
And I answer the question accordingly.
I hope that maybe you find the video at the very least, entertaining and possibly give you an idea as to why many people compete.
Thanks for watching.
