Double Elimination brackets

All of the brackets are double elimination – bronze match

This means that if you lose, you will still have an opportunity to fight for bronze

Example  8 man bracket:

The few divisions with only 3 athletes will be a round robin.  This means that every athlete will have 2 matches against each other athlete.  In the midst of 3 way tie, the winner order will be determined by the total points accumulated in all matches (in GI) and the fastest submissions (in NOGI). Otherwise it will be referee discretion.




How do I register for Absolute Divisions?

All brown and black belts can register at any time for the absolute division. (email to do so ahead of time)

All others must medal in the division brackets. Once they have completed their division, they can come see the coordinator to get registered in the absolute division later in the day.

Absolute divisions for Kids, Mens and Womens for GI and NOGI for the Sub Series Championship Belts and more!
