Pro jiu-jitsu league bans trans athletes from competing against women after complaints from female fighters

Following complaints from biological female competitors having to face trans women in matches, a prominent American Brazilian jiu-jitsu league banned “male-to-female” gender transitioners from competing against women in all its matches going forward.

In a social media post this week, North American Grappling Association (NAGA) President Kip Kollar announced that his league for the popular martial art will now exclude “male-to-female transgender athletes” from competing in the female divisions to maintain “fairness for female athletes.”

Kollar declared that protecting fairness for female competitors is the league’s “paramount priority.”
