Sub-Only Worlds Weigh-Ins


Try your best to make it to night-before weigh-ins. If you cannot make it on Friday night you still have the option to weigh-in on Saturday. However, because of the size of this tournament it would be helpful to our administrative staff if you can weigh-in Friday night.


Competitors weigh-in without the gi.

  • Yes, there is a 1 lb allowance given. Keep in mind 1 lb means 1 lb.
  • If you weigh in at 1.2 lbs over you'll have to lose the .2 lbs to make weight.
  • You only weigh-in ONE TIME. Pick either Friday night or Saturday.
  • It doesn't matter which one you choose.
  • What matters is that you show up on time for whatever day you choose.
  • If you don't make weight we will just move you up to the next weight-class after you weigh-in.
