    One way to stop sandbaggers is to have a database of competitors - Should be no problem - it can be taken from the registration list, which should be dated. At least that way it would be known who, and when they have competed at GC. Also, it could be confirmed what the experience actually entails: is it time spent training bjj? - grappling? - Wrestling - Judo? all of the aforementioned? In BJJ an experienced Judo dan grade can enter and compete in a white belt division if he/she hasn’t trained or graded in BJJ!
    Ultimately, it does come down to the integrity of the competitors and their coaches – Competition is about testing your self against others of a similar training experience. Why bother enter a division that is below your skill level – it would be like a blue/purple belt just sparring with white belts on the mat.
    I remember the young lad in question grappling at a UMA tournament back in Dec 2008 – he won his division if I recall correctly!
    Maybe it’s naivety on his behalf –

    This situation is unfortunate. Our Kids Division has always been u16s. He will have to be disqualified and the guys moved up. I guess he may have been adviced. In this case I don't think any other punishment is required.

    I do believe that you do have to give people benefit of the doubt unless someone has evidence. I was asked by one ref if a guy from my academy was a sandbagger and this competitor has only 8 months experience.

    hmmm sandbagging sucks, and shit sticks now because of this he's going to be labelled as a sandbagger, and fairly so by the sounds of it.

    Fantastic event, I had a great time.. Bit gutted I lost to mr duffy in the final but I learnt a hell of a lot too from the day

    Yeah that was me, it was a good match and very even, it was my second one as I did the UMA comp a few months ago, I think I'm going to do the intermediate level group next time and see how I get on there, expect I'll get hammered initially but should all be part of the learning. I think you'll do well at u73, all the best for the future comps
