Gi and No Gi Weight Divisions

Kids can easily fluctuate in weight over the course of a few weeks. Because of this, all kid competitors will be permitted a 4 lb allowance when weighing in for their matches. However, it is advised that if your child is close to the maximum weight limit, that you register them at a higher weight class.

*All weigh ins are conducted without the gi.
