These prizes will be awarded to female adult, female master, male adult and male master division winners. The cash prize will be determined by the amount of athletes registered in a division. 50% of each entry fee will go towards the cash prize awarded in a division.

Championship belts, along with the Gi & Rashguard in 2nd & 3rd place, will be awarded when a minimum of 5 athletes register in a division.


The Challenge Series No-Gi will adhere to ADCC ruleset with the exemption of slams. 


Weigh Ins

The start time for weigh ins will be published on our Facebook page the week fo the event. You may weigh in up until a maximum of one hour before the start time of your division.

All weigh ins are without the Gi. If you are fighting Gi and No-Gi, you will only weigh in once.

There is no weight allowance in any division.

 

Timings

Gi divisions will run first in the morning, followed by all cash prize Gi absolutes and finishing with the No-Gi divisions.

Junior and Juvenile divisions are scheduled for the morning.

The full event schedule will be released the week of the event.

 

Refunds

If we cannot find an opponent in your division and you do not wish to merge to another, you will be issued a refund.

Refunds for injury etc will only be given up until 2 weeks before the event. This is due to bracketing and scheduling.
