Forget what you know about jiu jitsu competitions. Just as companies like Airbnb reimagined hotel services, we are trying to reimagine a competitive jiujitsu experience.
With us, you collect points by participating in our events. Win or lose, points are awarded. Winning matches grants more points, and winning by submission deals double the points.
Get two matches per division plus unlimited call outs. You can call out any competitor so long as it's within the event timeframe. All events are affordable and never last more than three hours.
We don't have match brackets. We pair you up using skill-based matchmaking and award respective points to both fighters. Difference in weight, gender, belt colour and other factors are considered in scoring.
So no ones score ever goes down, but not everyone scores the same amount of points. #competition

Every competitor, win or lose, gains points in our system just for rolling.
We match you up in each division using skill-based matchmaking and award respective points to both fighters. Scoring is based on fighter differences (weight, rank, and gender), and submissions count for twice the points.
If there is no winner, we go into Golden Point. This means the first point scored wins. For details on the competition rules, click here.
Additional to your two matches per division, you are allowed to call out anyone else who registered for the event. Calling out and accepting call outs is strictly optional and unlimited. Call outs will continue until the three hours are over.
We are the only ones providing this type of experience in a competitive setting.
Skill based matchmaking is a fancy way of saying that we use clever algorithms that factor your weight, your jiujitsu rank, your gender, and your VSME score to match you up with someone of similar size and skill.
This is all automated and it can pair men and women together for inclusivity, fairness, and exciting matches!
You definitely don't have to. We understand there are many reasons why you wouldn't want to such as religious or personal preference.
When you purchase a ticket, it is required that you let us know whether you are ok with being matched with the opposite gender. Just select 'no' and you will be matched with someone of the same gender guaranteed. And no, no one will know how you answered the question when purchasing a ticket.
We reward the top 10 users on our leaderboards at the end of every season.
There are two seasons per year. January-June, and July to December.
Every season has their own prizes. Check our prizes page here for more information.

Part of what we are trying to do with VSME is create more inclusive events for females to get competitive rolls. Our platform allows women to be matched up with men or women, including in call-outs, which gives them the experience they are constantly looking for.
VSME is currently only for teens (16+) and adults.
Absolutely. Every VSME event has a crew of paramedics on site. Your safety is always top of mind.
All VSME events are officially sanctioned by the Ontario Grappling Association and insured up to $5 million dollars.

Unfortunately we do not issue refunds. We do however understand things happen and you may no longer be able to attend an event.
We will gladly transfer your registration to any other event of your choice.
