    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Just how many BJJ World Champions are there?

    I feel that every time I look up a BJJ instructors bio online it mentions that he is or was a World Champion. How many World Champion titles are there?

    One for each weight class and the absolute at each belt level and age group. So a lot.

    There is a single World Championships of BJJ, though? Wow, BJJ, a sport in its infancy, has already surpassed college football in organization.

    I made some rough estimates and came up with around 250 new World Champions each year. I'm not sure if even ATA have that many. Do you guys think this might become a problem?

    No other style has a problem with it...
    The key is to keep a central and easy-to-check evidence, preferrably on a website.
    Then you can have new world champions each minute, if you'd like.

    No. Sport BJJ hasn't been around even remotely close to that long. Sport BJJ only started in 70s and didn't really get going until the mid-80s. There was vale tudo and there were challenge matches, etc., but not organized sport BJJ like we see today.

    My coach won his division in 2001 when he was with Brazillian Top Team.
