Do I weigh-in with my uniform (gi)?
Competitors are not required to wear a uniform (gi) when weighing in.
What color uniform (gi) can I compete in?

What if I "Don't Make Weight"?
Competitors are bracketed into divisions based on age, weight, rank and gender. When you arrive at the venue these details will be confirmed by a representative from FUJI BJJ. Our staff will work to ensure that you are placed in the bracket that is the most appropriate for you based on this information. If for some reason we are not able to find such a bracket you may be asked to either fight in the next closest division or receive a refund.
Competitors are NEVER disqualified for missing the weight they originally registered for.
You are never expected to compete in a division which you are not comfortable with and may receive a full refund within the limits of our REFUND POLICY.
What rank can I compete at?
You are only allowed to compete at the rank you are given by your professor/instructor. This is confirmed during the check-in process.
Do you post brackets/competitor information prior to the event?
Each and every FUJI BJJ event is bracketed and scored by our proprietary computer software. Competitor lists and brackets may be published on a per event basis as the date of the event draws near. However, keep in mind the following:
- We allow day of registrations for the majority of our events.
- We DO NOT disqualify competitors if they check-into the event at a different weight than they registered for.
- Brackets, and sometimes registrations are finalized the morning of the event.
- Brackets, competitor information and results may not be available until the event begins depending on the event.
