Disclaimer for Kid and Adult Brackets

Kids brackets—The NABJJF designates a significant amount of time to bracketing the Kids.  If your child does not have a match in their division, rest assured that the NABJJF will do its best to ensure a fair match for your child.  In case we cannot come to a conclusion on what is best for your child, parents will receive a phone call to discuss the child’s best option for competition. Kid brackets are not posted on the site prior to the tournament, since they are subject to change.

 

Juvenile Competitors and older—The NABJJF holds you accountable to review the competitor list and contact us in case there are any changes. Competitors will have up to the Check Date to request to be moved in division. In case you are the only person in your division after the check date you will receive a gold medal in that division and qualify to compete in the open weight division. If you want a match but are not sure where you want to move to, send us an email that you are willing to move and we will place you in the best available option.
