MATCH QUEUING CARD:

After the athlete passes the check-in table, they will receive a Match Queuing Card with their name, mat number to report to, and match number for athlete’s first fight. If the athlete is the winner of their match the scoring table will issue them another card with NEW information for their next match.

UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS:

Be aware that ALL ATHLETES must WEIGH-IN with his/her GI ON. In the weight list the “GI” weight is already added, so make sure the athletes are in the correct division. All athletes must wear a CLEAN and a SOLID colored Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu GI (Kimono), either ALL WHITE, ALL BLUE or ALL BLACK in color. NO OTHER COLORS OF ANY KIND! NO mixing of colors. Example; white pants and blue top or blue pants and white top, etc.… will NOT be allowed.

Athletes’ brackets are based on Weight Division, Age, and Belt Rank.

In the weight list the “GI WEIGHT” is already added, so make sure all the athletes are in the correct division.

Athlete (or in the case of children, the parent) is responsible for ensuring that the weight is met with GI already on.  Any athlete that is over their registered weight will automatically be disqualified.

BLACK BELT DIVISION:

Men’s Black Belt Division: Only two divisions – Light Weight Division (181.0lbs. & under), and a Heavy Weight Division (181.1lbs. & over).

CHAMPION OF THE CHAMPIONS DIVISION:

Instead of the regular “OPEN DIVISION” for each belt, we will have the ‘CHAMPION OF THE CHAMPIONS DIVISIONS”. To qualify for the “Champion of the Champions” a competitor MUST take 1st or 2nd place in their weight division. The Champion of the Champions Division will have two weight classes, (181.0lbs. and under) / (181.1lbs. and over). White Belts will compete against other White Belts; Blue Belts compete against Blue Belts, etc…
Remember that the Champion of the Champion Division will be for the Adult Male Competitors Only!

NOVICE DIVISION:

We have a “NOVICE DIVISION” available for youth, juvenile and adults. To qualify for the “Novice Division” the athlete MUST have no more than SIX MONTHS of Jiu-Jitsu training, and the cutoff date will be 10/6/2018. Also, all athletes’ brackets are based on Weight Division, Age, and Belt Rank.
We want to give beginners a chance to compete and enjoy the atmosphere as a competitor and not just a spectator. This will be specifically for those students who have just begun to study the Art of Jiu-Jitsu.

EARLY CHECK IN (Fast Way):

Day before the tournament / Friday, April 5th, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm

Athletes have the option of pick up the required “Competitor’s Package” (Event Entry Tickets, Queuing Card, and one complementary Tournament T-Shirt) the day before the tournament if they wish. This will allow them to bypass the normal line for the competitors at the check-in table the day of the tournament and enter directly into the tournament site without waiting in line.
The Athlete can pick up the competitor’s package the day before the tournament at the Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy located at 1005 E. Pescadero Ave. Suite 149, Tracy, CA 95304 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm
