WHO ARE WE?

Young enthusiasts who found the courage to start up a brand new concept in this ever growing sport, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
We are highly motivated to deliver you the best tournament you’ll enter this year.
Every detail has been carefully examined and taken care of.

Our team consists of three people with each our individual skill set to organize the most exciting tournament of the year.
We are Jiu Jitsu brothers from Gracie Jiu Jitsu Oostende*. Each one of us has been practicing the art for a couple of years now and is an active competitor.
We implement this experience in our event and will make sure you’ll notice this on D-day.

We decided to start this project because we truly believe we can bring something new and way more exciting to the table.
This concept of competition is not available in the region although this is what everyone craves for.
After plenty of hours of brainstorming, discussing and testing, Helios was created.

(*) Gracie Jiu Jitsu Oostende is a known academy in the BJJ environment. We have a very good reputation and wear the name with pride.
If you’ve attended any competition last year, you surely have met a member of our competition team.
Honesty and hospitality are our main values and they are the core of our event!
Everyone who attended (one of the many) seminars at our academy knows that we accept newcomers and treat them with the utmost respect.

If you are interested in supporting our cause and sponsor this event, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
