AZ State BJJ Federation ‎Azsbjjf Referee Course

AZSBJJF Referee Course in Tempe on Saturday August 12th, 2017

Would you like to learn more about the IBJJF rules and regulations used in all AZSBJJF events?

The sport jiu-jitsu rules and regulations can be very confusing to updated athletes, coaches and referees, now imagine if you are not up to date at all?

The lack of knowledge and information often times can be the difference between winning or losing a match, an athlete injuring someone or being injured by an illegal move, or even a possible unnecessary argument with the officials or attendants of the tournament.

The AZSBJJF Referee Course, led by Referee Director and Second Degree Black Belt Samir Chantre, will take place on Saturday August 12th, 2017 at GD Jiu-Jitsu Academy located at 1848 E. University Dr. #108 Tempe, AZ from 2pm to 6:45pm.
