RULES and JUDGING CRITERIA
CHILDREN & TEEN DIVISIONS
CHANGES FOR 2023
NAGA has added the belt rank of children and teen competitors as criteria when choosing the appropriate skill level. More information about this can be found under the Divisions tab of this page.
To provide the opportunity for more matches, we have expanded the teen weight classes, and the upper weight classes of the children.
FREE GIFT TO ALL COMPETITORS
All NAGA competitors will receive a free gift at the event. The items are constantly revolving, so check-in at the event to see what is available.
GET YOUR GRAPPLING GEAR AT THE EVENT
NAGA is bringing a truckload of grappling gear (board shorts, bi bags, rash guards, t-shirts, hats, patches, skull caps, stickers, dog tags, etc.) in children and adults sizes, for males and females. Check out the huge selection of gear and apparel at the NAGA event.
COACH & PARENT CHAIRS
NAGA provides 2 chairs on each side of every score table, 1 for the coach of the competitor and the other for a family member or friend to shoot video or take photographs. Please note, no one else is allowed inside the barricades during the matches.
All NAGA events have a trained professional medic on sight. The medic will be visible and accessible to all in attendance. The medic is typically located between Rings 1 & 2.
