It is the responsibility of the athlete to be knowledgeable of the rules and guidelines pertaining to the sport (as outlined in the IBJJF Rules Book).
It is mandatory to have an official government photo ID or an IBJJF membership card at all times. Before each fight, athletes will be asked to show their valid form of photo identification (ID) to the officials. Make sure you have it on hand.
Please check the schedule link in order to know when you should be at the event ready to compete and inside the warm up area.
Competitors must be at the venue ready to compete one hour prior to the start time for their division in case the tournament is running earlier than expected.
The division start time posted in the event’s schedule is an estimated start time only. The division start time can vary throughout the event day due to several factors that are beyond our control.
The official weight measurement of this event is in KILOGRAMS.
Official weigh-in will occur immediately before the first fight. Only one attempt to make weight is allowed.
Be advised the athletes will be disqualified in their division if they weigh in heavier than the weight listed for the division they registered in.
After the deadline’s change, competitors who do not have anyone in their division group may be merged with another division. All athletes who remain solo in their divisions once brackets are released means had no default merges available to them, and therefore there are no matches available for that competitor. They will receive a full coupon credit for entry to any future event of ours.
