You may weigh in at any time after 9:00am, but you MUST be weighed in 15 minutes before your scheduled start time (listed above), or you risk being disqualified.
If you are competing in multiple divisions (gi and no-gi), you only need to weigh in ONE time for the whole day.
HOW TO WEIGH-IN:
To discourage unhealthy and potentially dangerous weight-cuts and diets, we do not longer holding 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 at an assigned time before your division.
There is a 1-pound allowance to account for undergarments and scale difference
You may not weigh-in until your assigned weigh-in time.
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 WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM YOUR WEIGHT DIVISIONS. If you signed up for Absolute divisions, you may still compete in those in your weight allows (ex. If you signed up for the Absolute No-Gi 0-170 lbs., but you weigh-in over 170 lbs., you will be disqualified from your Absolute division too).
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.
Competitors 13-years old and above may not change weight divisions on the day of the tournament as brackets will already be finalized and posted. 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.
Brackets will be posted online on the Thursday before the tournament.
We have recently updated our ruleset. Please review the rules and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
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.
NEW! Updated Round Robin format for 3-man brackets to guarantee 2 matches per competitor! See our Brackets page for more info!
