✏️Register your academy here!
Registered teams So FAr:
We will give a number of coaches from each academy free entrance according to this calculation.
- 1-5 fighters competing in the event that day= 2 coaches for free
- 6 or more fighters competing in the event that day= 3 coaches for free
Please coordinate in the academy, we will have a list by the entrance that coaches can sign when they arrive but if its full they will need to pay for their entrance.
Registration for the open class will open Sunday morning at 06.00-10.45 and you register by logging in to your account. From your previous registration for the normal division, click "add more" and then complete the registration for the open weight (no extra cost!).
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.
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 a guardian's certificate to be uploaded in the registration process which will confirm participation in the Adult class. Juveniles competing twice pay only the Adult fee. This option will be suggested to you (if you qualify according to your birth year) when you register at Smoothcomp.com.

About 30 minutes before the first fight, the athlete will check his/her weight with the Gi. You are only allowed to complete the weigh in when your name is visible on the screen names "current matches". There is only one opportunity to check the weight. If the competitor does not make the weight, they will be immediately disqualified (Adults + Masters). For kids & juveniles we will try and move you if its possible. Please make sure that you are in the correct weight division. There is a sauna in Nacka Dojos training center across the street of the arena and it will be warm from 08.00. You can not change divisions at the weigh-in, if you do not make your designated division, no changes will be accepted on the tournament day, no refunds.
All athletes should fight and weigh-in with the Gi. Only white, black and royal blue gi´s are allowed.
HOW WE MERGE GROUPS FOR KIDSWe will merge/combine groups if necessary. We will do this according to described standard.
1. We will combine weight classes within the same age and belt (we will try to avoid to big weight difference)
2. We will combine weight classes within the same age but combine belts
3. We will move to another weight class but with the same belt
4. We will move to another weight class and/or belt and age class
5. If no option above is possible we will cancel the weight class and give a refund
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 primarily be based on the athlete's weight and secondarily their age. For kids we might also have to mix belt colours.
HOW WE MERGE GROUPS FOR JUVENILES ADULTS & MASTERSWe require at least two fighters in one group for the weightclass to happen. We will merge/combine groups if necessary. We will do this according to described standard.
1. We will combine two weight classes within the same age (we will try to avoid to big weight difference)
2. We will combine two weight classes with the age group below (Master 3>>2>>1>>Adult)
3. If no option above is possible we will cancel the weight class 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.
For adults and masters we offer single elimination with a bronze fight or a bracket of three. For kids and juveniles we offer double elimination, round robin or best out of three to give everyone a minimum of two fights.
There will not be any briefing of the rules at the tournament, so make sure you read up on them. International BJJ rules from International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation will apply, you can find them at www.ibjjf.org/rules
