  • If you are competing in multiple divisions (gi and no-gi), you only need to weigh in ONE time for the whole day

  • We recommend arriving one hour before your division is expected to start to allow time to find parking, weigh in, warm up, etc.

HOW TO WEIGH-IN:

To discourage unhealthy and potentially dangerous weight-cuts and diets, we do not hold weigh-ins on the night before our tournaments. We recommend our athletes compete in a weight division that falls under their normal everyday weight.

 

  • Weigh-ins are without the gi at the venue before your division begins.

  • There is a 1-pound allowance to account for undergarments and scale differences.

  • If you miss your scheduled weigh-in time, you will be considered absent, your name will be removed from the brackets, and the bracket will be re-drawn.

  • If you do not make weight or do not weigh-in during your assigned weigh-in time, YOU MAY BE DISQUALIFIED FROM YOUR WEIGHT DIVISION. If you signed up for Absolute divisions, you may still compete in those.

  • Please make sure you are at the weight you registered for, as there will be no refunds or transfers given due to disqualification or missing weight for any reason.

  • If you know you need to change your weight division after you have registered, please contact us before 8PM on the Thursday before the tournament to change divisions.

 

Divisions will be posted online by the Friday before the tournament.

 

TOURNAMENT RULES:



  • Please review the rules and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

  • Review our Brackets page to see which bracket formats are used for a certain number of competitors in a division.

 

OTHER INFORMATION:

 

  • Full refunds if we do not have another competitor in your division (and team mates don't count as opponents). You will be notified by the Thursday before the tournament if you do not have a competitor.

  • Division credit rollovers if you have not started your division(s). This may be due to injury from a previous division, not showing up to the tournament, having to leave early, etc.

    • As a courtesy to other competitors, please let us know ASAP if you cannot make the event so we can update brackets. If there is only one other person in your division, it will give us an opportunity to contact the other competitor to let them know they do not have an opponent.
