    U.S. Open Works Hard to Ensure the Quality of Referees at Event

    As always, the Director of Referees for IBJJF Professor Alvaro Mansor will conduct a Rules and Referees Seminar prior to the tournament. The U.S. Open has a reputation for fair refereeing, among other things, and Professor Mansor is one of the driving forces behind this.

    This seminar is open to referees as well as competitors, who want to understand the rules of the sport. Knowing the rules only helps you to compete better, so don't miss this chance to bone up on your jiu-jitsu knowledge! We usually host this seminar the week before the tournament, but in order to better serve competitors we are considering scheduling the seminar for Thursday, October 19th. Potential attendees, your feedback regarding this option is greatly appreciated. Please email us at .
