All schools must be affiliated with AZSBJJF, operate under a certified team, with their lead coach being promoted by a recognized Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt. We do not support unrecognized or self-promoted individuals in order to maintain our high standards within the BJJ practice.
When your student signs up for the competition, he/she is asked to pick the name of the team and the name of the coach. Once there is an accumulation of competitors under a team; that is when the coaches’ list start. GD Events utilizes the names of the head coaches and assistant coaches according to the team size, extra coaching passes will be provided.
Below is the breakdown:
Schools with 1 competitor or no competitor – no free entry for coach
Schools between 2 and 9 competitors – 1 coach
Schools between 10 to 15 competitors – 2 coaches
Schools between 16 to 24 competitors – 3 coaches
Schools with over 25 competitors – 4 coaches
If a team has multiple schools competing under one name, coaches will receive entry based on the number of students representing their specific school.
The coach’s name will be at the door and the name cannot be replaced the day of the event. If a coach cannot attend the tournament, GDJJ Events needs to be notified prior to the tournament by Thursday night at 9:00pm.
All black belts who possess the IBJJF ID card up to date don’t need to pay for the spectator fee.
