The IBJJF has altered the period of the seasons for the counting of points for its athletes’ ranking.
From now on, each season will start on the first day of the World championship and end on the day before the beginning of the Worlds the next year.
With the change, athletes will not lose the points of the second half of the year (june-december), which made more difficult for black belts to qualify for the adult divsion at the Worlds (which requires 50pts or more).
As before, only the three most recent seasons will count points for the rankings.
Here is how each result will add points to athletes.
