125 lbs, 135 lbs, 145 lbs, 155 lbs, 170 lbs, 185 lbs, 205 lbs, 206+ lbs

Winning by Default


No competitor can qualify for worlds by default.


For example: You sign up for a Good Fight tournament. Noone else in your age category, belt level or weight class registers. This DOES not put you on the podium for Gold and qualify you for Worlds by default. You didn't win anything. In order to qualify you MUST win something.


In the above example: this competitor would be combined into a younger age category or the next heaviest weight class. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis based upon the  specific situation of the tournament.


Resolution: If a 36 yr old blue belt is combined into an adult (16-29 yr) age category and wins 1st place. The 36 yr. old would qualify for Worlds and be able to compete in the executive (30-39 yr) age category.


Reason being: he bet the odds and qualified in a younger age bracket. But because Worlds will bring much more competitors it makes sense to put him in his proper age category because there will be a bracket for him.


For Women: this section will become necessary for you to understand, as it's customary to have to combine, weight-classes. Again, we'll determine this on a tournament-to-tournament basis.


Kids/Teens:


There will only be one skill level for kids & teens at Worlds.


Therefore only intermediate and advanced skill categories are able to qualify for Worlds at regular Good Fight tournaments.


Those kids and teens that win 1st place in either the intermediate or advanced category will qualify and be placed into ONE skill level category at Worlds.


Please note: at Worlds there will be NO intermediate level and advanced level. It will be ONE level: advanced. Therefore intermediate will be combined with advanced at regular Good Fight tournaments IF it's needed to make a bracket.


Weight classes will be done the same way they are done at regular Good Fight tournaments.
All the kids will be placed into a bracket with other kids closest to their age and weight.

We will use a 2 yr. maximum different in age and a 10 lb maximum weight difference.


Age Change


Whatever age category you qualify in for Worlds is the age category you will compete in.


For example: if a 15 yr old qualifies for Worlds in the teens division and then turns 16 yrs. old afterwards, he is still eligible to compete in Worlds  in the teens division.


Weigh-Ins:


There will be night before weigh-ins from 6-8 pm. (please see Worlds web link for details!)


Weigh-ins will also take place Saturday, the day of the tournament at the venue.


Registration:


Online pre-registration will be open to ANY and ALL competitors.  


IF you are a qualified competitor please SCROLL DOWN and read the instructions on HOW TO REGISTER FOR YOUR FREE registration.


On-Site registration will also be available on Friday, the night before Worlds and
Saturday, the day of the tournament. (please see Worlds web link for details!)


Byes & Seeding:


Competitors that have qualified for Worlds should expect to be given 'byes' in the bracket
IF it's necessary.


Qualifying competitors should also expect to be 'seeded' in the bracket to go against
non-qualifying competitors in the first round of the bracket, IF needed.
