Brave Jiu-Jitsu closely adheres to the standards of the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) with a few exceptions to accommodate our Brave BJJ Tournament Model.
✅ 2 Matches Guaranteed
These are the type of brackets we use for our tournaments:
- Double Elimination With Bronze Match, when 4 or more competitors are in a bracket.
- Round-Robin, when 3 competitors are in a bracket.
Tiebreaker 1: Number of Wins by Submission
Tiebreaker 2: Shortest Total Fight Time
Tiebreaker 3: Sum of All Match Points
- Best 2 of 3, when 2 competitors are in a bracket.
✅ No Advantages
IBJJF Point Scoring Rules
✅ 2 Overtimes
In case of a tie during the regular match time.
Maximum of 2 (two) x 2-Minute Rounds
"First Point Wins" Overtime ---> "Golden Score"
We strongly encourage parents and coaches to ensure they understand the IBJJF set of rules for competitors of the same age division.
BRAVE DOES NOT USE THE "ADVANTAGE" SCORING SYSTEM
To score points, competitors must complete the proper technique, demonstrate control and dominance, and be free from any submission holds.
Make sure competitor knows what techniques are legal and illegal...
