Our primary goal is to create a safe, inclusive, and positive environment for all participants, especially our young competitors under 16 years of age. To ensure their safety and maintain the spirit of fair competition, we have established a policy regarding age and weight divisions for these young athletes.
In cases where a minor competitor cannot be matched within their original age group or weight division, we will allow them to be moved up to one age group or one weight division above their current classification. This adjustment is made with great care and consideration for the well-being of our young athletes, and we believe it strikes a balance between providing competitive opportunities and maintaining safety.
We want to emphasize that we will not permit any changes beyond a single age group or weight division increase for competitors under 16 years of age. This restriction is in place to prioritize the safety and welfare of our minor competitors, as their physical and emotional well-being is our foremost concern.
Thank you for your understanding and support in our commitment to creating a secure, nurturing, and enjoyable environment for our young BJJ practitioners. We look forward to witnessing their growth and development as they display their skills, sportsmanship, and dedication to this wonderful martial art.
