All weigh-ins are conducted without the kimono (for BJJ or No-Gi Divisions). A 1 pound allowance is given to all competitors to allow for undergarments (underwear, bra, etc.). Weigh-ins are usually conducted at the venue, unless otherwise specified on the individual event page.
Uniform for No-Gi: Rashguard on Top with Board Shorts, Lycra Shorts, or Kimono Pants on the bottom. Please make sure all pants have a drawstring and or another way to keep them secured at your waist during the match without any pockets, zippers or buttons.
Competition Area Boundaries: if the competitors near the edge, the referee will wait until a resting period and or until he/she feels the competitor might be in danger and re-start the competitors in the same position in the center. if a competitor scramble takes place near the edge, the referee will yell SToP and restart the competitors in the center of the ring in the standing position, unless the takedown is achieved in bounds to determine level of control for a 2 or 3 point takedown.
