For children who fall into the PEE WEE 1 and PEE WEE 2 categories (4 to 7 years old), there will be the option of entering an additional NO SUBMISSIONS division. Matches can only be won via points or referee decision. If a child reaches a submission or illegal position they will not be disqualified but the match will be reset in a position the referee deems appropriate and both children will be allowed to finish the match.
For all other divisions, submissions that are LEGAL under IBJJF rules for their age group will be permitted. The match can be won via submission, points or referee decision. The safety of the competitor will always be the referee's main priority, if the referee feels that the submission is close they will end the match to ensure there is no injury to either child and declare the child applying the submission the winner.
Children may be moved up or down a category in weight or may be moved into a different belt category in order to make sure every bracket is well represented. We will always prioritise having kids in their correct category, but we also want to make sure everybody who enters gets the opportunity to compete against an opponent who has a similar level of experience and is close in weight.
We want to make sure all competitors that come to our competition get a fair opportunity to compete and most importantly enjoy their experience.
No Refunds. Credit will be applied for entry to future events.
