They boast over 10K followers on Twitter and 38K followers on Facebook. 

Furthermore, with over 12K followers on Instagram, they are one of the hottest promotions in California.

The first event was held in Los Angeles, California, and it was a huge success. 

It drew in some of the best BJJ competitors in the world, and it was an excellent showcase of the sport. 

Eddie Bravo has continued to hold these invitational tournaments, and they have become some of the most anticipated BJJ events in the world. 

In 2022, Eddie Bravo announced his return after growing ‘Combat Jui-Jitsu’ to put on EBI 19. The event was held on March 14th.
