Our mission At Kaizen

BY Grapplers for grapplers

At Kaizen League, our mission is to change the culture of Brazilian jiu-jitsu and provide fair compensation for athletes' hard work and daily top performances. We strive to create a healthy and professional work environment for athletes, with clear and transparent policies, and ensure that everything is well-organized for athletes, just like in other professional sports. Additionally, we aim to stimulate the growth of BJJ in our region by providing accessible and challenging top-quality events that cater to both competitive and recreational aspects of the sport, offering opportunities for beginners, experienced participants, and professionals to enhance their skills and enjoy the sport. With a primary focus on the European mainland, we host events in the Dutch city of Zwolle, aiming to transform it into the premier BJJ destination in Europe.
