One of the biggest tournaments in Europe with over 1,500 competitors and 2 days long, the Polish BJJ nationals is a huge success that is only open for Polish citizens.
Poland is one of the top countries in Europe when it comes to BJJ, with many BJJ academies around the country and a massive 250 Polish black belts. However, for Romulo Caliri it is strange that this competition be only open for Polish citizens and not for Brazilians such as himself or other foreigners.
There are many other BJJ tournaments in Poland which welcome foreigners and there is even a IBJJF Poznan Open organized every year. There are also some big BJJ stars such as Adam Wardzinski who is ranked as one of the best black belt competitors in the world.
