DOMINACAO ABSOLUTA: UPDATE

submitted by: Carlo Pena

Hello fellow grapplers and martial artists, here are the final weight divisions for the Dominacao AbsoLuta GI and NO-GI competitions.

Gi weight classes for WHITE and BLUE belts (weigh-in w/ gi on):
Featherweight: 139.9 and below
Lightweight: 140 - 159.9 lbs.
Middleweight: 160 - 179.9 lbs.
Cruiserweight: 180 - 199.9 lbs.
Heavyweight: 200 lbs. and over

Gi weight classes for PURPLE belts:
Light: 174.9 lbs. and below
Heavy: 175 lbs. and over

Nogi weight classes for BASIC and ADVANCED divisions:
Featherweight: 139.9 and below
Lightweight: 140 - 159.9 lbs.
Middleweight: 160 - 179.9 lbs.
Cruiserweight: 180 - 199.9 lbs.
Heavyweight: 200 lbs. and over

Colored belts and experienced grapplers are urged to register for the ADVANCED divisions but the organizers will not be strict with what skill level you register in, so it is basically your prerogative to select where you want to compete. BASIC, we would hope, is for the NOVICE grapplers and the ADVANCED division is for those who wish to challenge themselves.

Junior divisions for those born 1991 and later: one division, except in the case of an oversized competitor, where we will split into two weight divisions for safety of the smaller players.

For female competitors: one division, except in the case of an oversized competitor, where we will split into two weight divisions for safety of the smaller players.

We're very excited to be able to put up an event like this and we hope to have more in the future to help promote the local grappling and also the MMA scene. Official registration forms and deadlines will be up anytime this weekend.

We'd like to thank ALL THE TEAMS who supported our last ROLLAPALOOZA tournament and those who plan to join this tournament - this is a good chance to expose our local grapplers on a different stage.
