May 17 in Virginia: US Grappling Reffing Certification

The clinic will run from noon until 6 PM.

Anyone can observe the class, but we are limiting the number of actual referee candidates. To be considered, you must hold at least a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and must be recommended by another referee, coach, or instructor. You must also have competition experience. You will need to provide references before you can be approved for certification.

The Referee’s Certification Clinic will cover common issues faced by referees and the proper way to handle such situations, proper scoring, “owning” your mat, protecting competitors, and many more topics. Before the day is through, all candidates will ref live matches, and will be critiqued on their performance. In order to learn to be a ref, one must actually do some reffing!

Note: there is no cost for this certification.
