A Grappling Tournament for Everyone

As always, we want all of our competitors to have as much fun as possible, so we offer a well organized tournament that is fair and offers a ton of matches at a low price. Because there is no additional cost and it is double elimination, each competitor has the chance to compete a minimum of 6 times if they did all divisions in the gi and no gi tournaments (regular divisions and absolute divisions).

There will be children’s, teens, women’s, men’s (18-30), and masters divisions (31 and above).  The weight classes for both gi and no gi will be as follows:

Weight Classes for Men Gi & No Gi

Adult Men (Masters class uses the same weight categories):
149.9 & Below
150 lbs. to 164.9 lbs.
165 lbs. to 179.9 lbs.
180 lbs. to 194.9 lbs.
195 lbs. to 209.9 lbs.
210 lbs. to 224.9 lbs.
225 lbs. & Above

***Many times there are not enough purple belt and above competitors to fill every weight class.  In that case, we will make the weight classes as even as possible

Adult Women:
135 & Under (Lightweight)
