RULES AND REGULATIONS

1.The typical tournament is divided up into matches between the same belt ranks and weight classes within the belt ranks. The progressive ranks in BJJ are white, yellow, orange, green, blue (after 16), purple, brown and finally black belt.

The match begins with competitors standing up on padded mats wearing gis. Competitors attempt to perform a takedown throws, foot sweeps, tackles, or alternatively, pulling the opponent to "guard". Once on the ground, they grapple but are allowed to stand up at any time.

We reserve the right to either subdivide or combine divisions, weight classes, or age classes the day of the event depending on the turnout.

2. Each Competitor will be allowed to register in ONE DIVISION ONLY.

3. All competitors must weigh-in with the GI ON.  There is NO weight allowance at weigh-ins.

4. Each competitor must submit an on-line registration form, sign the electronic waiver, and pay the entry fee.

5. No advantages will be given. If the match is tied at the end of regulation the referee will decide the winner based on who showed the most aggressiveness during the match.

6. All competitors must wear a Gi with a standard collar size and thickness.

7. All competitors must wear a CLEAN and a SOLIDcolored Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu GI (Kimono), either ALL WHITE, ALL BLUE, or ALL BLACK in color. Women may also wear ALL PINK. No mixing of colors. Example; white pants and blue top or blue pants and white top, etc… will NOT be allowed. Competitors will compete with regulation GIs only. A regulation GI is four fingers cuff clearance and sleeves are to be no shorter than 4” from wrist between wrist and sleeve of GI.

8. All male competitors are not allowed to wear clothing underneath the GI such as T-Shirts, Rash Guard, Sweatpants, etc.  Also, wrestling shoes are NOT allowed.  All competitors must wear underwear.

9. We will do our best to pair up Kids according to weight and age no more than 2 years apart. For example ages groups may be (6 & 7) (8 & 9) (10 & 11) (12 & 13) (14 & 15). We will do our best to not mix girl and boy competitors, but it may be nescesary.  Kids need to be registered according to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Belt rankings (White, Grey, Yellow, Orange, Green).  Karate or Tae Kwon Do belt rankings may be the same color, but are not equivalent to the skill level as jiu-jitsu. Consult your Jiu-Jitsu instructor before registering your child to avoid your child being entered into the wrong division.

10.  We reserve the right to refuse service.

11.  We reserve the right to close the tournament registration at any time in order to benefit our event organization.

12. We reserve the right to change the date and/or location of the tournament.

AWARDS: Competitors: 1st, 2nd, 3rd place will receive medals
