IBJJF Revises Regulations With Emphasis On Transgender Competitors & The Meregali Event

The International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) has revised the regulations that govern major Jiu Jitsu tournaments globally. These updated rules and regulations are alterations to current laws and the establishment of new ones.

A significant change, indicative of a resolution by the ADCC for its 2024 edition, is the one focused on competitors who are transgender. Specifically, all the athletes will now be mandated to participate in the gender category that matches their gender at birth, irrespective of any gender transition.

The federation retains the authority to ask for original identification documents if needed.
