The material may not be excessively thick or hard to the point where it will obstruct the opponent. Patches on the gi are OK. A rash-guard or snug-fitting t-shirt is allowed under your gi, but it is not required.


The jacket is to be of sufficient length down to the thighs, sleeves must reach the wrist with arms extended in front of the body. The pants must be reach to top of the ankles.


Belt, with color corresponding to your rank must be tied around the waist with a double knot, tight enough to secure your gi closed.

Long & loose-fitting board shorts or Gi pants on the bottom are required to be worn by all athletes.

Wrestling Shoes & Earguards  |  Groin Cups  |  Mouthguards


Wrestling Shoes & Earguards: No wrestling shoes or earguards are to be worn in any Gi or No-Gi competition. (An exception to this rule can be made if an athlete has a specific medical issue that requires coverage. A doctors note is required.)


Groin Cups: There is a legitimate concern of cups being used as a fulcrum to break someones elbow when applying an armbar and/or break someones jaw and crack their teeth when applying a triangle. It also can be used to push into someone's back once you take their back. For these reason we will NOT allow groin cups to be worn.


Mouthguards: This is up to each individual competitor. You can wear one if you want to. But, we will not require you to.
