Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Weight Classes

by Caleb on April 7, 2010

With the 2010 Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship coming up this weekend I thought it would be a good time to post a list of the different weight classes as listed by the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation. Of course you are weighed while wearing the gi, so make sure you take that into account.

ADULT, MASTER, & SENIOR

Galo = Rooster 126.5 lbs (57,50 kg)

Pluma = Light Feather 141.0 lbs (64,00 kg)

Pena = Feather 154.0 lbs (70,00 kg)

Leve = Light 167.5 lbs (76,00 kg)

Medio = Middle 181.0 lbs (82,30 kg)

Meio-Pesado = Medium Heavy 194.5 lbs (88,30 kg)

Pesado = Heavy 207.5 lbs (94,30 kg)

Super-Pesado = Super Heavy 221.0 lbs (100,50 kg)

Pesadissimo = Ultra Heavy Over 221.0 lbs (Over 100,50 kg)

FEMALE

Pluma = Light Feather 118.0 lbs (53,50 kg)

Pena = Feather 129.0 lbs (58,50 kg)

Leve = Light 141.0 lbs (64,00 kg)

Medio = Middle 152.0 lbs (69,00 kg)

Meio-Pesado = Medium Heavy 163.0 lbs (74,00 kg)

Pesado = Heavy Over 163.0 lbs (Over 74,00 kg)

To be honest, I sometimes confuse these myself too!
