    Well for starters, look at the No Gi rules. Apparently if you run away from your opponent you get 1 point :eek3:
    Then look at the Divisions: The only Beginner class listed is 140lbs and under (gi and no gi), Intermediate is 140-155 only, and advanced is 155 to 170 only. Then there are no divisions for 170 and up? :wtf:

    they have all skill divisions for every weight, for both no-gi and gi

    I see how you are reading it but I think you are mistaken, I am pretty sure they have everything

    The tournament I did the lowest weight class was <145. I weighed in at 142 fully clothed. There were only 4 dudes in my divison and I ended up taking 1st rather easily. I should have competed in the next division up (145-159) even though it would have fucked up the brackets (there were 4 in that division too) atleast I would have had some challenging matches. I almost feel bad, I beat a high school wrestler and a dude I train with that sucks. If this is a much bigger tournament with a lot of talent in all divisions thats one thing, but if not, dont cut. Compete at your natural weight and see what happens:dunno:
