Most tournaments use IBJJF’s rules. It’s important to understand them in order to compete and have the appropriate strategy. It also helps to prevent disqualifications or penalties due to the use of illegal techniques.
All this information material and new updates you can find at IBJJF’s website (http://ibjjf.org/rules/)
We encourage everyone to read the rules and discuss with your instructors and training partners, as they were designed to bring a safe environment for training and competing in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
Any questions or comments we will be happy to have a conversation.
