Mixed Classes

We aim to offer each athlete a chance to fight, so we might have to combine some classes if there are too few participants. We strive to get at least three (3) athletes per class, but sometimes only two (2) is possible. The mixing of classes will follow the regulations stipulated by the Swedish BJJ Federation.

1) Age. For children there can be a maximum of 3 years between contestants. Kids and Juvenile will never be mixed. Remember that competition age is calculated as (current year - year of birth). Juveniles are eligible to compete against adults in the same belt.

2) Weight. For children there can be a maximum of 2 weight classes difference between contestants.

3) Belts. For children we will either mix white with gray and then yellow and up, or if necessary white - yellow and orange & up. For adults the only belt mixing allowed is female adult division brown and black.

4) Gender. Children under the age of 12 can be mixed across genders. From 12 and up there will be no mixing genders.

If a coach and the parents of an athlete feels that they should be fighting at a higher skill level, weight class or age group a special application should be sent to the federation for consideration. This decision is made on a case-by-case basis.

Black Belt

If you are a black belt we offer you the opportunity to compete for free at our event.

Directions

Travel from abroad:

The best and cheapest way to fly into Malmö is to fly to Copenhagen in Denmark. From there it's a 35 minute train ride into Malmö straight from the Airport. It is also possible to fly to Malmö Airport, but generally it is more expensive than flying to Copenhagen.

Public Transit:

From Malmö C train station take bus number 8 to bus stop Kronprinsen or bus number 4 to bus stop Simhallsbadet. Both stops are just a short walk from the arena.
