If I've never competed in jujitsu freestyle kata competition before can I still compete?
YES! There will be a FREE training session on Saturday. Go to www.budoshin.com, click on the logo, & then click on Seminars & Events to find and download rules & check the schedule of events. This is an extremely safe competition format & most jujitsu ryu do very well with it. Best bet in your own dojo is to train against random street attacks by a workout partner for one minute & then switch. Speed is not important as judges are looking for skill & well-executed techniques. Your "attacker" should not be resisting anything you do.
Any discounts on room rates for the weekend?
YES! At the Safari Motel and Coast Annabelle Hotel. Ask for the corporate rate for the American Ju-jitsu Association. You may have to ask for Margaret. More info can be found on the "Seminars & Events" page of www.budoshin.com .
Does this tournament follow international jujitsu rules?
International jujitsu rules vary with each international organization. This is a freestyle kata competition under AJA rules -- not randori -- not kumite. While you can bring your opponent down to the ground to submit him/her, [which is within the rules,] grappling is counterproductive to scoring well in this type of competition. Go to www.budoshin.com, click on the logo, & then click on "Seminars & Events" to find and download the rules & scoring form. Most jujitsu ryu do extremely well in this type of competition.
Will my "attacker" be resisting techniques I try to use on him/her?
Can I use force/muscle, hard throws, etc., to subdue my attacker?
NO! Please keep in mind that this is a freestyle kata competition - not randori -- not kumite. Tori are expected to demonstrate control over the uke, who will NOT be resisting any techniques. If tori [defender] uses excessive force in any throws, techniques, locks, holds, pins, etc., he/she will be disqualified. Please download and read the tournament rules. Go to www.budoshin.com, click on the logo, & then click on "Seminars & Events" to find and download the rules

Is that the thing I asked about a long time ago?
And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

I'm still after those rules for you.
Reminds me of a two man kata type competition where you and a partener prearrange some fighting sequences and ttry to outdo other competitors and their sequences.
I suppose this is something you and your instructor probably NOT interested in.
