The Ranking System

Every individual member of the UKBJJA can achieve ranking points by competing in UKBJJA approved competitions. Ranked athletes will be eligible for sponsorship programmes run by the UKBJJA.

The competitions included in the UKBJJA rankings are listed below. Points are calculated based on standing in the event, the year of competition, and the weighting of the competition. Years are weighted as follows.
Current competition year x 3
Previous competition year x 2
Competition year three years ago x 1
After three years points will disappear.

Current events are listed below.
