WEIGHT CLASSES

See competition rules: http://ibjjf.org/rules/

MIXED CLASSES

We aim to offer each athlete a chance to fight at least 3 matches per day for juveniles and kids, so we might have to combine some classes if there are few participants. The mixing of classes will primarily be based on the athlete's weight and secondarily age. For kids we might also have to mix belt colours.

HOW WE MERGE GROUPS FOR KIDS

We will merge/combine groups if necessary. We will do this according to described standard.

1. We will combine weightclasses within the same age and belt (we will try to avoid to big weight difference)

2. We will combine weightclasses within the same age but combine belts

3. We will move to another weightclass but with the same belt

4. We will move to another weightclass and/or weight and age class

5. If no option above is possible we will cancel the weightclass and give a refund

HOW WE MERGE GROUPS FOR JUVENILES

We require at least two fighters in one group for the weightclass to happend. We will merge/combine groups if necessary. We will do this according to described standard.

1. We will combine two weightclasses within the same age (we will try to avoid to big weight difference)

2. We will combine two weightclasses with the age group below

3. If no option above is possible we will cancel the weightclass and give a refund

It is always your responsibility to check the brackets when they are published and cancel if you feel you have been moved to a new class that you can´t accept. Normal dates for refunds apply.

JUVENILES

Juveniles, 16-17 years old, may, if they so wish, also participate in the Adult class, but only in their own weight class. It requires, however, guardian's certificate which will confirm participation in the Adult class. The guardian certificate has to be mailed to [email protected]

Juveniles competing twice pay only the Adult fee. 

OPEN CLASSES

To qualify for participation in Open Class the following criteria must be met:

- You must be at least 18 years old.

- You must first have fought in your own weight class.

- You are only allowed to participate in the same belt colour category for Open Class as you participated in your own weight class.

For Male White and Blue belts(Female is one open class), the Open classes will be split into two. One Light for -76kg and one Heavy for +76kg. For -76kg you will have to weigh in by the mat before your first fight. You are free to choose any of these regardless of what weight class you competed in the day before. Example: if you competed in -76kg but do not want to keep dieting for another day, it is okay to register for the +76kg Open Class.

CHANGES OF WEIGHTCLASS

Last day to make any changes: Tuesday 19th of September 23:59

WEIGH-INS

Before the first fight, the athlete will check his/her weight with the Gi. There is only one opportunity to check the weight. If the competitor does not make the weight, they will be immediately disqualified. Please make sure that you are in the correct weight division.
