Dear Parents and Coaches,
Next Generation BJJ Tournaments strives to provide the best tournament experience for our young developing athletes so they can grow as martial artists and potential future competitors in larger international tournaments. We believe the single-elimination format is the most effective for this preparation. Therefore, strictly for our kids and teens, we will be reserving a mat for exhibition matches just as the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (IBJJF) does for their large youth tournaments.
WHAT ARE EXHIBITION MATCHES?
These exhibition matches are to give a chance to our young athletes who have met either of the following conditions:
HOW ARE EXHIBITION MATCHES SET-UP?
These matches will be coordinated on the spot and our staff at Next Generation BJJ Tournaments will do their very best to pair athletes as close to their age, belt and weight as possible. As we do our very best to pair athletes, some discrepancies in age and weight may occur and matches will only take place with the verbal approval of the athlete, parent(s) /guardian(s) if present, and coach. We will also offer to arrange a match between children who might be a belt rank apart if they are of similar age and weight.
Please note that we do our best to arrange matches as quickly as possible however we can only arrange matches once another suitable competitor is present therefore some delays do occur. We thank you and your young athlete in advance for being patient while we do our best to coordinate a fair match.
