Special Rules: 
 
  1. A competitor who voluntarily enters an age or weight division that is higher than his or her normal division must abide by the rules of that division.  Example: a competitor whose age would normally not allow the use of chokes (or armlocks), is subject to choking (or armlock) techniques if he or she voluntarily enters a division where chokes (or armlocks) are allowed.
  2. Contestants who complete in two or more categories must submit two or more entry forms and pay two or more entry fees.
 
All age/weight categories may be modified depending on the weight range of the contestants entered and after considering fairness and safety of the competitors.  Coaches, competitors, and/or parents will be advised if any published weight category is changed.
 
Any situation not covered by the above will be decided by the tournament director after
considering the safety of, and fairness to, all contestants.
Decisions by the tournament director are final!
