WEIGHT CATEGORIES

Like all martial arts and combat sports, events at GAMMA-India follow several weight categories that are called divisions.

The main purpose of weight categories is to equalize the battlefield and enable relatively similar opponents to face each other without anyone having a clear-cut advantage over the other. The weight categories are as follows:
