The No-Gi competition will offer only Adults (male and female) and Masters Divisions. Due to the lack of interest in previous NO-GI tournaments, we won’t be able to follow the IBJJF Experience levels. We will offer only two experience classes: B Class (Under 1 year of training) and A Class (Over 1 year of training). The competitors must wear board shorts and rash guards in order to compete!!!

Registration Online only! Each competitor must fill out the registration form online. The registration fee is $50 for the adults and juveniles (16-17 yrs) or and $35 for the kids division. If the athlete wants to compete in both divisions (gi and no-gi), the entry fee is $75. NO-GI DIVISION WILL NOT BE OFFERED FOR THE KIDS and JUVENILES!!!

All registrations must be received by Wednesday, October 22nd 2008 by 11:59 pm. No registrations after this date. Registration fees are non-refundable. No exceptions. The brackets will be released before the tournament. On Thursday, October 23rd, the brackets will be available online at our website.

Weigh in

The weigh in system is the same used by IBJJF. The competitor will weigh in before his first match. If you don’t make weight, you will be immediately disqualified. Please make sure that you are in the correct weight category. You cannot change divisions, if you do not make your designed division. No changes will be accepted on the day of the tournament, and no refunds will be made. We offer an extra scale for people to check their weights before.

This is a sport with rules, and making weight for your division is part of the rules. In order to maintain the integrity of our tournament and the sport we STRICTLY enforce this policy, so please take responsibility and show up to the tournament at the correct weight for your division!
