Although the sport of BJJ has been around for several decades, it was not until the advent of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championships) that it really grew in popularity. Where as grappling tournaments such as the Mind Body Soul and The Submission Series were in scarce supply of competitors ten years ago, both events are a host to hundreds of competitors.
The evolution of the sport has also made it very exciting as every year new techniques are being invented with counters upon counters being developed shortly after. The challenge of sport has been great publicity to spread the word of BJJ.
