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.

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.

Each team can only have two athletes in the same division bracket (of age/weight/belt).
