    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.

    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.

    No, I've seen brown belts that are IBJJF refs.

    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.
