BJJ Weight Classes QBJJC/AFBJJ/IBJJF

Most of the competitions/tournaments that our members enter are part of the Queensland Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Circuit (QBJJC). The QBJJC is affiliated with the Australian Federation of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (AFBJJ) which is in turn part of the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF). It is therefore the IBJJF weight classes that most concern CAZA members.

Note that these weight classes are the absolute limit permitted at your weigh-in time. You are weighed fully dressed in your uniform and no flexibility will be offered from officials if you ‘miss weight’.
