Australian Institute of Sport
Registration closes on 06-Sep-2018 (Thursday)
On The Day
Please pay attention to the announcer that will be calling the next divisions to fight to enter the warm up area. Once in the warm up area you should wait to be called for your match and if you win return to the warm up area, until you are done competing your division. Marshals will not look for competitors outside the warm up area and once you have been checked on the list you will NO LONGER be called on the microphone.
GI CHECK: when entering the warm up area your gi and No Gi uniform will be checked according to IBJJF regulation by our staff, please be aware of IBJJF rules prior to competing.
AFBJJ Membership Required
All competitors are required to have current AFBJJ memberships to compete in all AFBJJ nation wide events. In order to compete the online registration process, competitors must authenticate using their AFBJJ membership username/ID & password. If you have any further membership related queries or assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The AFBJJ now calculates competitor date of births against the the 31-12-2018 (or current year minus year of birth) to align with IBJJF rules. So, a competitor born on the 12-09-2007 will therefore compete in the 14 Year Old age group.
Juvenile Open Weight Categories
In line with IBJJF weights and categories, all AFBJJ events will also offer Juvenile’s an Open (Absolute) weight category. Male juvenile competitors must be competing in a 71kg (net weight, see below) weight category or heavier to qualify. Female juvenile competitors must be competing in a 58kg (net weight, see below) weight category or heavier to qualify.
Weights in the drop down box are represented as net with the appropriate Gi or No Gi allowance included in brackets e.g. the 79kg (82.3kg) Gi weight category means a net weight under 79kg and a combined gross weight (including Gi) of under 82.3kg.
