This event will be run on IBJJF rules. A copy of the rulebook can be downloaded here: RULEBOOK
All weight categories are run as previous events.
All divisions will be run using repechage so everybody entering both go and no gi should get at least four fights.
Competitors who medal in their weight division will be eligible to enter the openweight (absolute) division for their belt level.
In the event of only one person registering to a division, the athlete will be offered the chance to compete at a higher weight or proceed straight to openweight (absolute). If they do not wish to do this, a refund of the entry fee will be given. No default gold medals will be awarded.
Competitors can use the Smoothcomp system to make a change in weight division up until midnight on Sunday the 17th of March, no changes in division will be considered after this date and any competitor who fails to make weight on the day will be disqualified without any possibility of refund. All competitors must make weight on our scales. There are no allowances given.
All payments must be made via Smoothcomp ahead of the event.
This event has a zero tolerance policy regarding inappropriate behavior by coaches, parents/guardians, spectators and competitors.
All in attendance must show some restraint when their students or team mates are fighting. There will be competitors and spectators of all ages at this event and we are here to set an example.
Any swearing, inappropriate gestures, violence (towards person or property) or berating the officials (regardless of any decisions they make) will not be tolerated. If this happens, the referee/organiser has the right to disqualify that competitor, or to ask the person concerned to leave the area. If those concerned do not comply with the referee/organisers request the competitor will be disqualified from the event.
If a coach, parent or team mate encroaches onto the mat, or past any barriers that are in place, or man handles an official in any way, that person will be asked to leave the venue and the whole team may not be permitted to take any further part in the competition.
