Few reminders for the weekend:
Please login and verify that your registrations are accurate. You have until Thursday 8PM to make changes.
Coaches/Parents: Please double check that you’ve selected the nearest weight for the young competitors (Round up!) This allows us to do our best to make the fairest brackets!
Adults/Competitors: Make sure you are registered in the right division. The weigh class selections is the MAX weight for that division. (-168 means you must be under 168). ** If you do not make weight you will be disqualified ** We will not be making any changes to brackets for missed weight. Choose wisely.
Kids will weigh-in WITH the gi on.
Adults do NOT have to weigh-in with the gi. NOGI attire (shorts+shirt) is ok. This is something we are trying out for this event with the addition of the absolutes.
Reminder this will be advance (purple+) rules. Open weight and open experience.

In order for us to make the best and fairest brackets for kids, we have all kids registrations entered under the nearest 5lb increments. We will then sort the kids to our best abilities to the nearest weight, age and skill.
The live registration list is just who’s registered and not the brackets.
We will be hosting a rules clinic May 10th, Saturday 230PM at Gracie Humaita Winnipeg

We are still hoping to finalize a few more local sponsors to increase our prizes for our new absolute divisions with 100% going in to make these prizes even bigger and better. If you would like to or know a business that might, please send me a message.
Also looking for a food vendor/truck for both days. We’ll have over 600 people in through the event and plenty of hungry ones.

NEW FOR 2018: ADULTS Weigh ins can be with your NOGI attire. You no longer have to wear your GI to wear in. (this is due to adding the absolutes at the start of the day).
Kids will continue to weigh-in with their gi before the GI division, and will continue to have a weight allowance.
We are excited to offer new absolute divisions at the start of the day!
A true test for the best of all sizes and experiences to test themselves.
Absolute divisions will be open to -everyone-, all experience all weights. You must register for the absolute divisions in advance.
$20 to register be absolute division (ex: $70 for adult registration + $20 for absolute GI + $20 NOGI absolute).
You can register for GI, NOGI or BOTH for the same fee as long as you register at the same time.
We are working to put together some great prize packages for the winners.
There will be both Men and Women’s GI and NOGI absolutes!
We are always looking to expand our referee pool in 2018!
If you are a purple belt and up and would like to referee, email us to join our mentor-ship program. We will teach you the rules and how to referee. During the tournament you’ll be partnered with an experienced ref who will be at your mat with you during your matches. We will help with any issues and provide feedback after.
Being a referee is a hard job, but without them we wouldn’t have a tournament.
We pay all of our referees for their work!
email us today: firstname.lastname@example.org
