  • Do I register for the age I (or my child) will be on the day of the tournament or the age they're turning this year (like IBJJF)?

    We use the age the competitor is on the day of the tournament.

Kids may always fight in an older age bracket if they so choose for more o...

  • Can I register at the door?

    NOPE! Every Tap Cancer Out BJJ Open is pre-registration only, closing the Tuesday before the tournament.
  • I am 30+ / 40+ but see that Brown and Black Belts only offer Adult. May I still compete?

    Of course!! It just means that we don't separate Black and/or Brown belts by age. At those belts, everyone fights in the same age division. The average age for a brown and/or black belt competitor is around 35. Whether 4 years old or 104 years old, you're welcome at a Tap Cancer Out BJJ Open!

That's because with so many competitors missing weight and changing divisions for any number of reas...
