Only Head Instructors can request weight category changes on behalf of their students. These requests must be submitted whilst registration is to open. Once registration closes no changes will be accepted.
All allowances are already included in the specific weight categories. Competitors just prior to their division beginning. Although it is optional to cut weight to enter a lighter weight category, it is the competitors obligation to be on or under their specific weight category. There are no further weight allowances. If the athlete exceed their weight limit by the time their match is called they will be disqualified and they will forfeit their entry fee and no placing will be recorded.
Uniform requirements are as per IBJJF regulations. Please follow this link:
