Another important topic, RULES. You should know the IBJJF rule book back to front if you want to make the best of your experience and play by the rules.
Smoothcomp is the hub for registrations. You will probably find other events that are not part of AFBJJ ranking. It doesn’t mean that they are not good or important (ADCC, for example). But this blog is specific for AFBJJ events.
1st Place (gold) = 9 points
2nd Place (silver) = 3 points
3rd Place (bronze) = 1 point
To calculate ranking points, simply multiply the athlete’s placement by the number of stars of the championship.
1st place at the IBJJF Pan Pacific Championship = 9 x 6 = 54 points
2nd place at the Australian Jiu Jitsu Championship = 3 x 5 = 15 points
3rd place at the New South Wales State Championship = 1 x 4 = 4 points
