Effective for 2021, the ICBJJ Scholarship Program will provide training to officers until they either reach the rank of Blue Belt or have been under scholarship for 2 years - which ever comes first. Our goal is provide as many local officers and troopers with our high level jiu-jitsu and self-defense based training as possible. We believe that our standard for Blue Belt is an excellent minimum requirement that will provide the officer with a solid understanding of fundamental grappling both with and without weapons.

Officers that are well trained in grappling and other hands-on techniques are more capable, more competent and more confident than officers who do not train. This means that officers who train regularly in our BJJ and Self-Defense programs are less likely to use excessive or unreasonably high levels of force when interacting with a resisting subject. A well trained officer means that not only is the safety of the officer improved, but so is the safety of the community and the people the officer must interact with as part of their job.
We currently can only offer a limited number of scholarships to our local LEOs. Your support will help us be able to offer these scholarships to more of our local officers. Our goal is to train all local officers to the rank of at least a Blue Belt - hopefully even higher!
