Top female grapplers from all over the world will be in attendance. There will also be a Contenders event, that gives the opportunity to up-and-coming female athletes to battle it out for a place to compete at the grand prix.

Some of the Best Female Grapplers in the World representing Women’s Jiu-Jitsu
Polaris is has put together an impressive card for the all-female GP that promises to deliver must-watch matches. Eight women will battle it out for the GP prize of $20,000 and the title of Polaris 23 GP Champion.
The first super star announced is none other than Polaris under 55kg Champion Ffion Davies, coming in to the tournament after delivering an incredible performance at ADCC 2022, where Davies won gold and became the first UK athlete to reach the ADCC podium.
Joining her is Elisabeth Clay, who also competed at ADCC 2022. Clay lost in the opening round to the eventual champion Amy Campo, but is one of the best female grapplers of her generation regardless. She is a three times IBJJF World Champion and has won numerous titles in NoGi, most recently in 2022 when she won both her weightclass and the absolute division by submitting five out of six of her opponents. Clay is a force to be reckoned with.
Amy Campo is next on this notable list. The phenomenon defeated Gabi Garcia on her way to becoming the heavyweight division female Champion of ADCC 2022. Campo, who has only been a black belt a little over a year, has she’s already won almost everything there is to win in the sport. The Polaris GP is the next logical step for this incredible athlete to showcase her superior grappling skills.
Following is Giovanna Jara. The Dream Art Project black belt has won multiple IBJJF World and ADCC trials. She lost in the opening round of ADCC 2022 to Kendall Reusing but aside from that match, Jara has not been submitted as a black belt. She’s an incredibly tough competitor, not to be underestimated. Jara is more than capable of beating any of the other superstars in the GP.
The remaining fan favorites to join the stellar card are Brianna Ste-Marie, Julia Maele and Jaidyn Mueller with the final eight-spot going to the winner of the Ladies Contenders.
