PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ THESE ADDITIONAL NOTES
Please report to the weigh-in area at the stated time in your Gi and Belt.
Please ensure you are wearing footwear up to the scales.
You cannot weigh-in early, but you can have a test weigh. If you make weight on a test weight, you will still have to weigh-in and make weight at the stated time for your category.
Brackets will start approximately 5 - 30 minutes after the report time.
Some categories have 16+ competitors, therefore although your category may be called, it could be some time before all fighters in those categories get onto the mat.
You may notice that some categories share the same weigh-in times. These are generally the smaller categories that we run concurrently to give competitors sufficient rest between fights without having to leave the mats empty. Most categories (groups of categories) will take 1 - 1.5 hours to complete.
Waiting to Fight
At the report time for your category you must be in the warm-up area, and remain here until you have finished fall of you matches.
The table staff will not run around the centre looking for you. If you are not in the warm-up area when called, your fight will go down as a loss.
How the Categories will be run
2 in a category will be a straight final.
3 in a category will fight using the IBJJF method.
4+ in a category will be straight elimination.
The medal presentations will take place shortly after your category has finished.
