The International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) is a for-profit company that hosts several of the biggest Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) tournaments in the world, including the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship, Nogi World Jiu-Jitsu Championship, Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship and European Open Jiu-Jitsu Championship. The federation was created by Carlos Gracie, Jr., who is the head of one of the largest Brazilian jiu-jitsu associations, Gracie Barra. The IBJJF uses the rule set of the Confederação Brasileira de Jiu-Jitsu.[1]

IBJJF Gi Tournaments

Athletes competing in official IBJJF tournaments can gain ranking points which count towards their position in the official IBJJF rankings. In the 2017/2018 points system first place in weight divisions is worth 9 points, second 3 points and third 1 point. First place in the open class is worth 13.5 points, second 4.5 points and third 1.5 points.

The IBJJF weight tournaments in terms of their importance in the calendar. The weighting of a tournament is a factor towards the calculation of the number of points the athlete can win via their participation. The IBJJF also use a third criteria for determining ranking points which is the calendar season the tournament took place. For the 2017/2018 season, ranking points gained at an IBJJF event from 2015/16 are multiplied by 1, 2016/2017 by 2 and 2017/2018 by 3.

Points are calculated as follows:-

Number of points x tournament ranking x year weighting

Examples:-

2017/2018 World Championship 1st place open division 13.5 for first x 7 tournament ranking x 3 season weighting = 283.5 points 2015/2016 British National 2nd place medium heavy division 3 for third x 1 tournament ranking x 1 season weighting = 3 points

The Gi tournaments in the 2017/2018 season along with their tournament weighting are listed below.[2]
