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
All athletes, regardless of age, are to weigh in right before their first fight of the day. You weigh in with the gi/kimono/uniform on.
For Adults & Masters international weight classes applies. For Kids and Juveniles we are using the weight classes defined by the Swedish Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation, see the list below.
Juveniles (16-17yr, Boys & Girls)-48.5kg, -53.5kg, -58.5kg, -64kg, -69kg, -74kg, -79.3kg, -84.3kg, -89.3kg, +89.3kg
Kids (Boys & Girls)-19kg, -22kg, -25kg, -28kg, -31kg, -34kg, -37kg, -40kg, -44kg, -48kg, -52kg, -56kg, -60kg, -64kg, -68kg, -72kg, +72kg
Mixed ClassesWe 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.
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 birthyear) when you register at Smoothcomp.com.
