Purpose, Aims, Functions of the Organization
The purpose of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club at Georgia State University is to bring together a number of grapplers and other athletes interested in wrestling or submission grappling. With this in mind, the club will enhance the ability of the athletes by stressing group workouts and stretching. The club will provide both a physical and social experience that should prove gratifying for all members involved.
Both Undergraduate & Graduate
If your organization has selective membership, please describe the selection process.
To be eligible, a person must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher, must be a Georgia State Student, Graduate Student, Alumni, or faculty member. Also, some form of grappling experience if preferred but not mandatory. If the person has no grappling experience, he/she must first sit in for two sessions, before participating.
Due to being a Tier 1 club at Georgia State University, we receive a healthy budget each year that has proven to be enough to cover competition fees and anything else we may need. As a result it is no longer necessary to charge for club membership. If these circumstances change in the future, then we will revise this portion of the club.
