I do bjj 4 times a week and box once a week, do I need supplements and vitamins? My objective is not to build muscle, but for the sports.

In brief: Very Unlikely

Vitamins (plentiful in all kinds of foods ; thus humans have not maintained every gene needed to make each from scratch), needed in only trace amounts as helper molecules for complex protein enzymes our cells make, have been promoted as big business.
This enables selling molecules extracted from food waste to increase money stream. Unless specific deficiency additional intake rarely beneficial.
