Weight Divisions

Submission Arts United > Weight Divisions

All weigh-ins will take place all day. Adult Competitors are expected to be checked-in, weighed-in, warmed up and ready to compete 1 hour prior to their scheduled division.

Competitors weigh-in WITH THE GI ON.

We tolerate a 1 pound allowance.

It is the athlete’s responsibility to be on weight and make sure they are registered in the correct weight division, rank, and team on the competitor list.

In the occurrence that an athlete cannot make weight, he/she should contact us immediately before the registration deadline. The day of the tournament, the athlete will be able to compete in the higher weight class only and only if the brackets permit us to do so. Please keep in mind that changing divisions the day of the tournament is something we want to avoid to keep the tournament running smoothly.
