    That's a less confusing naming system because lots of grappling sports (Judo, Wrestling) use "Senior" to mean "Adult".

    So you can do Master 1 at age 29 now? Damn. I'll be a masters athlete in a month.

    Also if I'm reading that right if you're over 40 and a white belt you have to jump in with Master 2 - so a 50 year old white belt would be in with 35 year old white belts?

    Sort of, you qualify for masters ( and the other age cats) based on the year of your birthday rather that your birth date. You qualify the year you turn 30 ( or what ever age) regardless if if you have had your birthday or not. So assuming your post means you turn 29 in November, you would compete as an adult in a comp in say December, but if it was in Jan 2014 you could do masters as you would be turning 30 in 2014

    Now I get it - I'm 29 in November 2013 but I turn 30 in November 2014 - so I can register for Euros in Jan 2014 as a Masters as I turn 30 the same year as the comp.

    I won't be doing that though as the toughest guys in my gym are aged between 32 and 36 and are blue belts. Fuck that noise.
