Australian Girls In Gi - Competition

August 30, 2014, 9:00am

Dominance Mixed Martial Arts

COST: $40 weight division $10 open weight (must enter weight division to qualify) WHO: Adults & Teens: This comp is fun and friendly – the least stress possible & the perfect opportunity to try your hand at competing, to gain more ‘mat miles’ before the larger comps of the season, to try out reffing, to support your friends, to be involved! Cash prize for the open weight winners! Tweens & Juniors: Junior competitors (12 and under) are encouraged to attend and are FREE OF CHARGE (with their parent or guardian), as we cannot guarantee them a perfect match up. We will do our best though! Girls 5 and under are encouraged to come along WITH THEIR GI as we will be playing BJJ competition intro games all day (think Twister in a gi). WHAT THE DAY HAS ON OFFER: $40 for 4 guaranteed fights (+$10 toward the prize pool in the open weight) Gi Round Robin Competition – 5 girls in a group for 4 minimum matches. White Belt & Coloured Belt Open Weight/Absolute - single elimination with cash prize for winners! SCHEDULE: 9:00am – Registration & weigh in at the door 10:00am – Matches begin We cannot release exact start times but we will endeavour to run the competition as quickly as possible. Spectators (both male and female) welcome. RULES: Competition match rules & guidelines as per IBJJF handbook. Uniform requirements as per IBJJF but ANY COLOURS YOU LIKE! FAQs Where do I register? At the door, cash only. Must register for your division and open weight at arrival. When are weigh ins? 9am, as you register at the door. When can I see my division/bracket? As registrations and weigh ins are on the day this year, divisions will be announced 10am at the competition & no sooner. What are the weight divisions? Put simply, the weight divisions are not pre-determined. Registrations are made at the door and girls are listed lightest to heaviest. Your weight division is yourself plus the 4 girls closest to you in weight and belt rank on that list. Should I cut weight? No. Come as you are. What is my gi allowance for weigh in? You don’t have to make it to a specific weight so gi allowance is not relevant. You can weigh in wearing what ever you like. What should I wear for this competition? Gi must be well fitting, clean and in presentable order - not deemed too large or too small. Any colours/combinations allowed. Patches everywhere encouraged. No rips or tears. Boobs must be contained. See through anything, not allowed & just kinda weird. No metal clasps or fixings in hair. No jewelry of any kind. What is a round robin ? Competition format sees that you have a match with each of the girls in your ‘group’ regardless of outcome per match. The winner of the group is decided by a point system based on tallied results per match. What is a single elimination format? Standard competition format whereby you need to win your current match to proceed further in the bracket, coming down to a final with only two competitors. What is an open weight/Absolute? A division that has the opportunity for all weights within a belt catergory to enter. Can I enter just the open weight? No. You must compete in your category before you compete in the open weight. Why is the open weight $10 extra? All monies collected for open weight entries will be awarded as prize to the winner! COMP FORMAT FAQs How is an individual match won? Submission or highest points. How are points allocated in a match? POINTS are awarded during the match as follows: 4 points – back control with hooks 4 points - mount 3 points – establishing a controlled position after passing a guard 2 points – sweep 2 points – takedown/throw What about advantages? No advantages will be awarded at our competition. How do I win a round robin division? Overall division win/loss TALLY will be calculated to find overall result. SUBMISSION WIN = 3 to overall tally POINTS WIN= 2 to overall tally DRAW= 1 to over all tally LOSS = 0 to overall tally What about ref’s decisions? No refs decisions. Result is a draw if no points or submission in play. All the best with your preparation! Looking forward to seeing you there ~ Jess
