MMA Tournaments for Minors
Although I'm at no level to compete yet, I was wondering; are there any organizations or organized events that cater to the under 18 crowd? Is it legal in the US (to compete for money if you're under 18?) In a few months I'd like to compete. Mainly for $$$ (Although I know the prize money isn't UFC/Pride/K-1 type money but, to a 16 year old kid, or rather, to this kid, $500-$1000 is a lot of money). Or even if there is NO prize, I'd still like to compete.
What about Boxing/Kick boxing events?
Any links to web sites would be appreciated.
BTW, I'm in the New Jersey if that helps.
