The Referee ist he highest authority on the mat.He/she represents ILLCS and its approach of fighting.
Our Referees ideally have to be blue belts in Luta Livre or in BJJ and most likely they are active competitors or coaches themselves.
ILLCS referees are trained in ILLCS seminars to be up to date with the ILLCS rulebook and all kinds of situations that can take place in a tournament.
The ILLCS referee’s highest duty is to keep all competitors safe, therefore they can stop a match if there is the possibility of an injury. Referee decisions are final and not arguable, however the referee can counsel with his co-referee or chief-referee if present.
