Congrats to our SUPER MUMS!
 
First elimination comp since February 2020. Nerves were once again a demon that nearly took me out before the day but learning a bit more about how to handle them and accepting it’s part of it all.
Once on the mat, game plan went out the window and just had to put everything aside and go for it.
Huge thank you for coaches Chris, Jihad , Arabella and David for the mental support, advice and knowledge, my extended jits family for the mat times, jokes, chats and all round love, my in laws for looking after our gymnast, my own Nam , for taking care of things so I can have the time to live my best jits life, policing my Doritos in take and J.. for the hot chips. 🍟🍟
 
 
Nat is one of our champions who only recenty started her Jiu Jitsu journey and is already in her second competition. Always trying to lead by example for her kids! 
 
Well done Nat!
 

IBJJF RULES

IBJJF Rule Book v5.1

fouls

IBJJF UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS

Gi's should be tailored using cotton or cotton-like fabric only. The fabric should not be so thick or hard as to impede an opponent from gripping it. For juvenile, adult, master and senior divisions, a Gi fashioned from woven fabric is mandatory.
It is permitted to wear kimono with EVA or similar material inside the collar, if the measures of size and riGidity regulations provided in the IBJJF Rules Book are followed.

Gi's must be of uniform color.

The following colors are permissible: white, royal blue or black. Gi's with tops and pants of different colors are not permitted; nor are Gi's with a collar that is a different color than the rest of the top. Painted Gi's are forbidden, unless the paint is designed in the form of an academy or sponsor logo – and only on reGions of the Gi where patches are permitted. Even in cases where they are permitted, the athlete will be obliged to change Gi's should the paint mark the Gi of the opponent.

Patches may only be affixed in authorized reGions of the Gi, as depicted in the IBJJF Rules Book. They should be of cotton fabric and properly seamed. All patches unseamed or in unauthorized reGions of the Gi will be removed by the Gi inspectors.

BELT REQUIREMENTS

Athletes should use a durable, 4 to 5 cm wide belt colored according to the athlete’s rank, with a black tip – except for black belts, where the tip should be white or red. The belt should be worn over the top, wrap around the waist twice, and be tied using a double knot tight enough to hold the Gi top closed. Once tied in a double knot, each end of the belt should hang 20 to 30 cm in length.

Gi MEASUREMENTS

The Gi top should reach the athlete’s thigh and the sleeves should come to no more than 5 cm from the athlete’s wrist when the arm is extended straight parallel to the ground. Gi pants should reach no more than 5 cm above the tibial malleolus (ankle bone).

The inspection will verify whether the following official measurements are met: Gi lapel thickness (1.3 cm), width of Gi collar (5 cm), opening of sleeve at full extension (7 cm).

OTHER REQUIREMENTS

Use of a shirt under the GI top is prohibited, except for women. In the female divisions, it is mandatory for the use of a stretchy or elastic shirt that hugs the body beneath the GI; It can be short or long sleeved, without the necessity to follow the color requirements. It is also permitted for athlete’s to use a one piece swim garment (bathing suit) or gymnastics top.

Wearing pants of any kind under GI pants is prohibited, except for women, who are permitted to use pants made of elastic fabric (clings to body) under the GI pants, as long as these pants are shorter than the GI pants. Athletes must use undergarments. The use of thong-type undergarments is not permitted; only briefs-type undergarments.

GIs may not exhibit mending or tears, be wet or dirty or emanate unpleasant odors.

NO-GI JIU-JITSU UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS

Both genders must wear a shirt of elastic material (skin tight) long enough to cover the torso all the way to the waistband of the shorts, colored black, white, or black and white, and with at least 10% of the rank color(belt) to which the athlete belongs. Shirts 100% the color of the athlete’s rank (belt) are also permitted.

Note: For black belts a small red area will be tolerated, but must not decharacterize the athlete’s rank color.

SHORTS FOR MEN

Board shorts colored black, white, black and white, and/or the color of the rank (belt) to which the athlete belongs, without pockets or with the pockets stitched completely shut, without buttons, exposed drawstrings, zippers or any form of plastic or metal that could present a risk to the opponent, long enough to cover at least halfway down the thigh, and no longer than the knee.

The shorts must not have pockets or have the pockets stitched completely shut, must not have buttons, zippers or any kind of plastic or metal that could present a risk to the opponent, and must be long enough to cover halfway down the thigh and no longer than the knee.

BJJ Kids Competition

Competition exposes you to a larger variety of grappling ‘styles,’ some of which you might not see in your MMA / BJJ gym day to day. Tournaments give you a chance to both see and experience how other teams play the game.

The intensity that comes with tournament preparation can help you move past any training plateaus, as well as accelerate your rate of learning. There’s something about knowing you’ll have to put your techniques to the test against other skilled athletes. It’s a part of the BJJ and grappling experience.

There’s something indefinably awesome about being at a tournament, with your teammates and coaches cheering you on, experiencing all the highs and lows and the intensity that you can’t find anywhere else.

IF YOU’RE CURIOUS ABOUT COMPETING, ASK ONE OF OUR COACHES, AND THEY’LL POINT YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

Hickson Gracie vs Yoji Anjo

Japanese pro wrestling superstar Nobuhiko Takada had been calling out the legendary Brazilian fighter Hickson Gracie, who did not even acknowledge him.

Yoji Anjo, a famous pro-wrestler back in Japan, headed down to LA to challenge Hickson Gracie to a fight. Yoji showed up at the academy while Rockson (Hickson’s eldest son, RIP) was there, asking where Hickson was, and refusing to leave if Hickson did not fight him. The students called Hickson who was at home, and Hickson arrived soon after. There were tons of Japanese reporters outside, and Hickson did not allow them inside his academy.

Anjo then questioned Hickson’s honor and the two went into a room. Hickson famously said later “If we fight for money, I’ll stop hitting you when you ask me to. If we fight for honor, I’ll stop hitting you when I feel like it.”

Only one of his students filmed the fight, which has never been available. Anjo was a bloody mess after the fight. This is what Hickson looked like afterwards.

G-Force BJJ

The only copy of the tape is held by Hickson, and he has never released it. However, Gordon Hester has watched the tape with Hickson, and offers a narrative of what happens.

“I watched the video where Anjo announced in a large stadium he was going to LA to fight Hickson to the death and also the video afterwards where some small guy who was a reporter showed up with a sign reading “I want to fight Hickson Gracie”. I watched them with Hickson at his home.

As for the lead up, if I recall there was bad blood between Hickson and some fight group in Japan called “Rings”. Hickson beat their top fighter and they sent Anjo to avenge that fight. I would guess he made the announcement at some Pro Wrestling event since there were probably about 10,000 people at the event. If I recall, Rings did Pro Wrestling and MMA.

As for the fight, Hickson was home when Anjo and a big crew showed up at his school. Hickson got the call and drove over. They kicked all the media out of the room and then Hickson’s group filmed the fight. Anjo was bigger than Hickson. No refs and a real fight. Hickson traded some kicks and then eventually went in and got the clinch. He immediately went to the mount and never lost that position. From there he just beat up Anjo with punches. One time Anjo turned over and Hickson kept pounding him in the neck instead of choking it. Hickson told me he wasn’t done punishing him. He rolled back over and took a massive beating including one shot that looked like his nose split in half. He rolled over again and Hickson choked him unconscious and left him in a pool of blood. Hickson didn’t have a scratch on him.

I remember discussing the violence of the fight with Hickson. I felt like he really gave that guy a much bigger beating than necessary. He explained to me that when he let the media back in, there needed to be no doubt who won. Anjo went to the hospital. Hickson celebrated with his students. I was told this was big news in Japan and there were certainly lots of pictures that floated around of Anjo being a beaten mess. If I recall, he later sent Hickson a gift to apologize, sort of a Samuri thing.

As for the small guy that showed up afterwards, it was just a goof. Some reporter came to Hickson’s school and was meet at the door by Lemon and Rockson. The funny part of the video is Rockson telling the little reporter he had to beat him before he got a shot at his dad. As usual, Rockson had to be controlled because he was always ready for a fight. I think Rockson would have destroyed the little reporter since he was not a fighter. RIP Rockson. I miss you.

I do hope the video comes out some day. It wasn’t like an MMA fight. There were no rules and no refs. It was basically a street fight in a dojo. People and fans of MMA today don’t realize that this is how Hickson and many fighters of his time grew up. Vale Tudo fighting is way different than MMA.

I also remember Hickson having absolutely no emotion about the fight. It was sort of odd to see someone in that situation talking through the fight when we were watching it and explained it without the least bit of emotion. He also showed no emotion before or during the fight. It supported my belief that one of Hickson’s greatest gifts was his mind. He sort of reminded me of a socio path when he fought, only thought and no emotion regardless of the situation. Anyway, that is the story as I remember it."
