RULES & CATEGORIES

What are the rules?

Whilst we're using the IBJJF rules, we're asking our refs to use some leniency in their interpretation, especially for the lower grades. This means that we'll try and use English rather than Portuguese, and warn competitors if they're about to reap or grab someone's shorts (for example).
