Bigfoot Grappling Challenge was started in 2018 by Joe Baize and Jason Matherley. With decades of competitions between them they set out to host a tournament with a different goal in mind. They want it to be as low of cost as possible for the competitors and the ability to win money. They also want to be able to highlight the black belts and show the respect that they deserve for putting it on the line at the highest level. Every competitor has the ability to win money while putting their own stamp on the jiu jitsu scene. Bigfoot Grappling Challenge has become one of the most respected tournaments in the Tennessee. We hope to continue to grow and further the sport of jiu jitsu.
