- IBJJF Worlds
I always considered ADCC to be the world’s premier grappling tournament - slams & heelhooks allowed, world trials before the actual world championship, open to all grappling styles, etc.
IBJJF Worlds is also super prestigious but I rate it a notch below ADCC purely because of the ruleset. I find it ridiculous that heelhooks are banned even at the black belt level.
What do you guys think?
