The AFBJJ maintains a referee certification program. The rules instigated by the IBJJF are updated bi-annually. Courses for both certification and updates are held around the country, usually just prior to an event.
Before the end of the 2015 calendar year a National Head Referee will be appointed for 2016. The National Head Referee will be responsible for the coordination of event referees and also the maintenance of refereeing standards. He will share the appointment with IBJJF and be caretaker of the IBJF rules in Australia.
News of the appointment will be made public on our home page when it is confirmed.
