* Prize from our partners to the winners of the + and - white & blue adult classes
Gentleman agreements are not allowed and if we see that happening, no money will be presented to the winner.
Registration for the open class will open Sunday morning at 06.00-12.00 and you register by logging in to your account.
To qualify for participation in Open Class the following critera 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, guardian's certificate 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.

If the competitor does not make the weight, they will be immediately disqualified. 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 09.00. 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 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
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 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 (Master 3>>2>>1>>Adult)
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 cant 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.
