I am curious to know how much does ibjjf pay its referees and event staff?
I think you have to be a IBJJF BB to be ref.
I think someone mentioned getting pay $150 for one day of Ref.
so it is about $18.75 per hour.
You could that much money doing a couple of hours (teaching private classes) if you were an IBJJF BB.
I wonder if they get paid to travel?
My buddy refs for them as a part time job.
I think they try to pick up local guys for events first, but if they need refs to travel, they do cover travel costs I believe.
Overall the pay is pretty solid. It's something like $20/hour like lechien said.
I know of 1 IBJJF referee that is currently a brown belt.
No, I've seen brown belts that are IBJJF refs.
He is allowed to ref bb matches.
I know of several purple belt refs also, i'm not sure how the hierarchy of reffing works IE purple can ref purple and down etc.
