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 membership@afbjj.com.

Rules
This event follows the IBJJF rules. All competitors are expected to be familiar with these rules and the uniform requirements prior to registering for this tournament.

Age Selection

The AFBJJ calculates competitor date of births against the 31-12-2018 (or current year minus year of birth) in alignment with IBJJF rules. So, a competitor born on the 12-09-2004 will therefore compete in the 14 Year Old age group.

 

Weight Selection

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.

Junior No Gi
Due to the current AFBJJ policy regarding Junior No Gi, NO RESULTS will be listed, NO RANKING POINTS will be assigned and NO TEAM POINTS will be allocated for Junior No Gi divisions. All other divisions will be listed.

Juniors transitioning to Juvenile & Adult Belt Ranks
The QBJJC recognises that Black Belts & Head Instructors, will know which is the correct rank to graduate a Junior to in the year they turn 16. No Juveniles or Adults may wear Junior coloured belts (Grey, Yellow, Orange or Green) – Instead they must wear either White, Blue or Purple Belts at their instructors discretion!

The fighter and/or their guardian (if under 18yrs) acknowledges and agrees that the fighter shall be responsible to obtain all or any insurance for loss and/or medical, hospital, life, income protection, personal, property, or any other risk or damage that the fighter may cause or suffer, (whether directly or indirectly) and the fighter covenants that he acknowledges that any failure by the fighter to fully insure himself against any accident, damage, injury, loss, whatsoever, howsoever arising shall be solely at the risk of the fighter.

AWARDS & GIFTS

Competitors may only receive their medals whilst standing on the podium with the other competitors who placed in their division. If a competitor does not do this they will not receive their medal at a later date and this action may also cause a disciplinary result, potentially banning a competitor from competing in other divisions at the same tournament – due to bad sportsmanship. Competitors that are eligible for a gift, prize, T-shirt or other awards must collect them on the day of the competition. If they are not collected on the day of the tournament, the competitor is forfeits their right to all gifts, prizes, T-shirts or other awards.

 

REFUND POLICY
Any competitor that decides to withdraw from the competition prior to the Last Registration deadline, may receive 50% of their fee refunded. Competitors seeking the 50% fee re-compensation must alert the event organisers by email addressed to qbjjcaustralia@gmail.com. No entries will be transferred or credited. There are no refunds or credits for this event, no exceptions. You will not be entitled to a refund or credit, regardless of whether or not you participate. By paying for your registration you will be put into a bracket and be called to compete on the day of competition. You will lose your first match by disqualification if you do not show up for your match, do not make the minimum qualification for that bracket, or have an injury or other medical condition that will not allow you to compete. This also includes single fighter categories when you are unable to be merged into another division, or your opponent/s have withdrawn from your division. This also includes divisions where all other opponents withdraw, are disqualified or absent and only one competitor remains. In this instance the single competitor will gain points to be nationally recognized, as well as team points, and be awarded the Gold Medal on the podium, and declared the winner.

DIVISION CHANGES
Only Head Instructors can request division changes for competitors, which must be done before registration closes. This is to be done via email to qbjjcaustralia@gmail.com. Competitors who are from the same team that may be matched or merged, once registration has closed will not be eligible for a refund and will be unable to have their division changed. If competitors in this situation do not compete they will be disqualified and will not receive medals, ranking & team points as well as any gifts or awards associated with that division.
