We are always looking to expand our referee pool in 2018!
If you are a purple belt and up and would like to referee, email us to join our mentor-ship program. We will teach you the rules and how to referee. During the tournament you’ll be partnered with an experienced ref who will be at your mat with you during your matches. We will help with any issues and provide feedback after.
Being a referee is a hard job, but without them we wouldn’t have a tournament.
We pay all of our referees for their work!

We will be back May 26 and May 27 for a two day event!
Adults will be on Saturday May 26 930-430
Kids will be on Sunday 10-1
We have simply outgrown a single day event. However we hope this will allow us to schedule proper absolute divisions for the adults and more round robin brackets for the kids!
Save the date: May 26/27!!!
details out soon.
If you are planning to do both GI and NOGI, make sure you register and add both GI and NOGI the same time so that the discount can be applied. Otherwise the system will charge you for each.
See you Saturday!

Note: For all kids divisions 12 and under our referees will stop the match when -any- submission is locked in place.
This is not a new rule, but we are re-enforcing it. We understand the desire to win at all costs, however we believe in the safety of the competitors always comes first. There is no exception to this rule.
Note: New rule: Any athlete who happens to go unconscious (due to choke, etc.) will no longer be able to compete for the remainder of the event. Again, athlete safety is our number one priority.
We have updated our rules with some minor clarifications.
