QBJJC CALOUNDRA OPEN 2019
The Caloundra Open is a Tournament for all levels of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & competitors of all ages.
RESPONSIBILITY TO CHANGE DIVISIONS
If I select QBJJC
The QBJJC reserves the right to adjust registrations where appropriate – it is the policy of the AFBJJ Inc. & QBJJC not to have categories with only one competitor. One competitor categories will be abandoned with the competitor being moved down in age to another category i.e. an adult born on 23-07-1975 will be 44 years old on the 31st of December and should select the Master 3 Division – this adult (if he is alone in his chosen category) will be moved to the first available weight category whether that be a Master2, Master1 or even to an Adult category. The same too goes for a competitor in a single competitor category, they will be merged up in weight to the first available category. On rare occasions competitors who are matched may be merged up to match with a single competitor category.
I realise that I may be merged into another weight, age, belt or even gender category to ensure that I have a match, and that this will be done to the next closest division available, and wave my right for a refund in this event of this occurring! However any competitor that the QBJJC is unable to be merged is eligible to receive a 100% refund (minus transaction fees), if they choose not to remain in an unmatched bracket, and waive their rights to a medal and points. Or if there is no possible matches and no other division you can be merged into, you will receive the gold medal on top of the podium, only after you have made weight and had your uniform inspected. For competitors in an unmatched bracket to apply to receive a 100% refund (minus transaction fees) an email must be sent to email@example.com no later than one day prior to the competition.
If I select Myself
I REALISE IT IS MY OWN RESPONSIBILITY TO CHANGE DIVISIONS IF I DO NOT HAVE A MATCH!
Competitors in Single Fighter Categories are now able to choose who they compete against and can change to the division they choose. Kids/Juvenile may go up in Age & change weight, Adults/Masters may go down in Age & change weight. Or they can instead decide to stay where they are and make weight to receive their gold medal on the podium in their chosen division. The choice is yours. Competitors have up to and including the day of Check & Change to decide, and or be refunded 50% of registration (minus transaction fees).
AFBJJ Membership required
All competitors are required to have current AFBJJ memberships to compete in all AFBJJ nation wide events. In order to compete the online registration process, competitors must authenticate using their AFBJJ membership username/ID & password. If you have any further membership related queries or assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event follows the IBJJF rules. All competitors are expected to be familiar with all these rules and the uniform requirements prior to registering for this tournament. Ignorance is not an excuse – please follow this link to see the current IBJJF rules. https://ibjjf.com/rules/
The AFBJJ calculates competitor date of births against the 31-12-2019 (or current year minus year of birth) in alignment with IBJJF rules. So, a competitor born on the 12-09-2005 will therefore compete in the 14 Year Old age group.
Weights in the drop down box are represented as net with the appropriate Gi or No Gi allowance already included in division e.g. the 82.3kg division already includes the 3.3kg allowance of the 79kg division. Competitors must be under the weight division when they step onto the official scales or they will be disqualified immediately.
Junior No Gi
Due to the current AFBJJ policy regarding Junior No Gi, RESULTS will be listed, However NO RANKING POINTS will be assigned and NO TEAM POINTS will be allocated for Junior No Gi divisions. All other divisions will be listed.
Juniors transitioning to Juvenile & Adult Belt Ranks
The QBJJC recognises that Black Belts & Head Instructors, will know which is the correct rank to graduate a Junior to in the year they turn 16. No Juveniles or Adults may wear Junior coloured belts (Grey, Yellow, Orange or Green) – Instead they must wear either White, Blue or Purple Belts at their instructors discretion!
Competitors are responsible to ensure they have registered under the correct academy/team name. Once registration is completed this cannot be altered.

RISK AND INSURANCE
The competitor and/or their guardian (if under 18yrs) acknowledges and agrees that the competitor shall be responsible to obtain all or any insurance for loss and/or medical, hospital, life, income protection, personal, property, or any other risk or damage that the competitor may cause or suffer, (whether directly or indirectly) and the competitor covenants that he acknowledges that any failure by the competitor to fully insure himself against any accident, damage, injury, loss, whatsoever, howsoever arising shall be solely at the risk of the competitor.
And the competitor and/or their guardian (if under 18yrs) hereby indemnifies the QBJJC against all and any loss or damage caused directly or indirectly by the competitor’s involvement in the event or contest. Furthermore, the competitor shall make themselves available at QBJJC’s discretion to undergo pre and post bout medical examinations, including drug testing, by duly qualified personal on the day of the event, at the QBJJC’s discretion and shall participate in the event solely at the QBJJC’s discretion, dependent upon the interpretation of the results of those tests at the sole discretion of the QBJJC.
AWARDS & GIFTS
Competitors may only receive their medals whilst standing on the podium with the other competitors who placed in their division. If a competitor does not do this they will not receive their medal at a later date and this action may also cause a disciplinary result, potentially banning a competitor from competing in other divisions at the same tournament – due to bad sportsmanship. Competitors that are eligible for a gift, prize, T-shirt or other awards must collect them on the day of the competition. If they are not collected on the day of the tournament, the competitor is forfeits their right to all gifts, prizes, T-shirts or other awards.
Only competitors that have selected QBJJC and are unable to be merged after Check & Change Day will be eligible to receive a full refund (minus transaction fees). This option must be taken before the commencement of the competition.
Any competitor that decides to withdraw from the competition prior to the Registration closing, may receive 50% of their fee refunded. Competitors seeking the 50% fee re-compensation must do so before the registration closes or they will be unable to. No entries will be transferred or credited. There are no refunds or credits for this event, no exceptions. You will not be entitled to a refund or credit, regardless of whether or not you participate. By paying for your registration you will be put into a bracket and be called to compete on the day of competition. You will lose your first match by disqualification if you do not show up for your match, do not make the minimum qualification for that bracket, or have an injury or other medical condition that will not allow you to compete. This also includes single competitor categories when you are unable to be merged into another division, or your opponent/s have withdrawn from your division. This also includes divisions where all other opponents withdraw, are disqualified or absent and only one competitor remains. In this instance the single competitor will gain points to be nationally recognised, as well as team points, and be awarded the Gold Medal on the podium, and declared the winner.
