A youth-only BJJ tournament series, Battle 4 the Ages aims at finding the very best talent in the world with their age-centric tournament brackets. Essentially there are no weight classes or distinctions in rank. The only way brackets are set up is based on age, with competitors from 8-16 years of age all competing to be the best of their age group. Likewise, female competitors also have their own divisions to compete in as well, with a preteen and teen female division option to go along with the male age groups. Female grapplers can compete in both, and many take advantage.
