No formal weight classes. Matches will follow a round robin style with all the competitors of the nearest weights until each competitor has faced every opponent. After all the matches of similar weights are finished, athletes may request a match with the opponent they choose regardless of weight class. They will wait with their opponent until a mat is open, then they may step up and have their match refereed. This format is designed to maximize the number of matches for each competitor. This is a casual tournament with no prizes designed to give competitors enjoyable competition experience and for the Marquette University BJJ club to showcase their skill.



Athletes must weigh in before the start of the event so that matchups can be created ahead of time. Weight classes are entirely for match making purposes. An athlete will be placed in whatever weight class they weigh within, they do not need to make a certain weight. Athletes can compete against someone of a different weight if they so choose and their opponent agrees. Athletes can weigh in with clothes on but must take off anything of significant weight including the Gi. Every athlete may have the chance to compete in any number of matches they choose to in both Gi and No-Gi.



Traditional point scoring: 4 for mount, 4 for back, 3 for guard pass, 2 for sweep, 2 for takedown, 2 for knee on belly, and no advantages. All positions must be held for 3 seconds to score the points. A submission is an automatic win. A first penalty will result in a warning, a second penalty will result in the opponent being given 2 points, a third penalty will result in disqualification. If a match ends in a draw EBI overtime rules will apply. The athlete who attacked more gets to choose the position of either back control or spider web (arm bar). Both athletes get a chance to attack and defend. The overtime rounds are 30 seconds each and the athlete with the fastest submission, or fastest escape in the case of no submissions, wins.
