Before his/her first fight, the athlete will check his/her weight with the Gi. 

There is only one opportunity to check the weight. If the competitor does not make his/her weight, they will be immediately disqualified. There is no tolerance on weight allowed. 

Please make sure that you are in the correct weight division. You can not change divisions, if you do not make your designated division. No changes will be accepted in the tournament day, no refund. (No changes after the Athlete Correction Deadline - NOTE: No changes, refunds or credits are possible after this deadline.)

Example: -107.0 lbs (Rooster) means athlete must weigh 107.0 lbs or below with their Gi on, 107.1 lbs will result in a disqualification.
