PLEASE NOTE according age categories:
Decisions and explanations from the JJIF Technical Congress in St. Petersburg 2010, adopted by JJIF GA and JJIF Board, amended by the JJIF Technical Congress, Board and JJIF Congress in Malmo, 2018:
• The age is considered according to the year of birth, not the actual birth date of the competitor;
• The athlete can compete in one higher age category – goes for Ju-Jitsu Fighting, Ju-Jitsu Duo, Ju-Jitsu Show and Jiu-Jitsu (Ne-Waza).
• However, a team (Ju-Jitsu duo or ju-Jitsu Show) made up of one U18 and one U21 athlete can only compete in U21, not also in Adults +21 (the U18 athlete, although member of an U21 team, cannot jump over two age categories and compete with the Adults)!! Se is true for couples consisting of athletes in U16 and U18.
