WEIGH-INS: Competitors are responsible for weighing in at their dojo under the supervision of the dojo instructor and providing accurate weight. There is no weigh-in at the tournament, however weights will be verified as needed. If a coach or official believes a competitor’s weight and bracketing may create an unsafe condition, the competitor will be asked to verify weight.
