I and many others believe that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a special competitive sport which is highly under-appreciated in the wider population. We believe it would be a fantastic addition to the Olympic events list and even better as a competitive sport in the first ever Olympics held in Brazil.
While we understand that the ever growing number of sports included, especially from increased pressure from larger sports has meant that there are already a significant number of events that cannot be fully covered. It would almost be inappropriate for one of the national sports of such an influential and prosperous country not to be included in their first ever Olympics.
It is already a highly competitive sport with millions of elite competitors worldwide and already has world championships in which a high level of competition makes for compelling viewing, whether those watching have previous knowledge of the sport or not.
