    Fri, 2009-10-23 11:12 — goatfury

    To clarify, US Grappling will be using the same weight classes for both gi and no-gi competition. Competitors will NOT be required to weigh in with the gi.

    We will continue to reserve the right to combine weight divisions as necessary to provide the fairest matchups for the competitors. This is especially true of the 30+ and women's divisions, but also will happen occasionally in adult men's divisions.

    Please post your thoughts here and help us make our decision. If you don't presently post here, and would still like to weigh in, send us an email at questions @ usgrappling.us.

    Thanks!
