At BJJ Nation tournament IBJJF rules will be used
To qualify for participation in Open Class the following criterias 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.
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. 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.
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 HERE
🥋 JUVENILES IN ADULT CLASS?
Juveniles (16-17 years old), may, if they so wish, also participate in the Adult class, it requires, however a guardian's certificate to be uploaded in the registration process which will confirm participation in the Adult class.
Download this document and then have the instructor and one parent sign it and then upload the signed document in the registration process. It is also possible to send an email to [email protected] after the registration has been completed.
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 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 & MASTERS
We require at least two fighters in one group for the weight class 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
