we will be holding "day before" weigh in's for the Nevertap tournament. Those of you who wish to weigh in the day before the grappling tournament will have an opportunity to do so. Friday the 16th from 6:30-7:30 PM at the "Tiger Muay Thai Grill" we will be conducting the first weigh ins.


January 17th will be the Nevertap Tournament.
Second weigh in's will begin at 10am and are closed at 11am. You must make weight by 11am.
*NOTE: Competitors only need to make the competition weight once. We are holding two weigh in's for individuals interested in cutting weight to compete* Rules meeting starts at 11:30, and matches will begin shortly after a breif warm up period.

The first round of the Nevertap tournament is double elimination.
This means you are guaranteed a minimum of two matches. If you lose your first match you will be bumped into a losers bracket. The winner of the losers bracket will face the winner of the original bracket in the finals for each weight division. After your first match if you lose you are eliminated from the tournament.
