    Just curious if most of you try to stay as close as possible to the top weight of the class you're fighting in or if you cut down a lot prior to your fight. :dunno:

    So like if you walk around at 170, do you fight there or do some of you cut down to 155? :dunno:

    My last Judo tournament I was 230 and cut to make the 199-220 division, only because I didn't want to be in the heavyweights (221 and up). 230 fighting 280+ lb guys would suck. :o

    For the next one, I'm currently 210 and will compete at my normal weight.

    I walk around 178-182.

    If I can weigh in the day before without a gi, 169.9. Otherwise I'll fight in the 179.9 or 181 with gi.
