Although this Las Cruces taekwondo tournament is big enough that most sparring and many forms divisions have weight classes, we decide weight classes while grouping competitors in the holding area. We weigh all competitors at check in, to make this easier.

We run a complicated schedule with 6 rings going most all of the time.  See schedule: 2016 Map and Schedule  .  You may check-in until one hour before your first event.
