AGE / WEIGHT DIVISIONS

Weight Divisions
Contrary to popular belief, size is as important to Jiu-Jitsu as it is to other competition sports. Although a highly skilled small person has been known to defeat a larger less skilled opponent, the usual result historically has been of some physical injury or injuries to the smaller opponent. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a size factor sport, weight divisions have been established to minimize becoming the prime determinant of the winner. We do however host open divisions at tournaments and participation in these divisions are optional for all participants.
Competitor or in the case of children, the Parent is responsible for ensuring that the weight is met with Gi and/or rash guard already on. Any athlete that is over their registered weight is subject to disqualification.
