1. ALL competitors will now have to register (MANDATORY) with the Ontario Jiu-Jitsu Association. Kids and adults. Club memberships will not be mandatory at the moment.
It is very important to register before the tournament and have a proof of membership on you during the check-in process. There will be an OJA registration table but we highly recommend to do this prior to the event to prevent tournament delays.
2. ALL adult divisions will be SINGLE-ELIMINATION. Kids divisions will stay DOUBLE-ELIMINATION.
