What do you guys think? The ruleset is not listed, but I emailed to find out. A year ago I tried continous and found it better than point sparring, but still lacking. This is full contact continous. I've never competed full contact, and the most I've trained is hard contact.
My thinking is that it would probably be alot easier than full contact kickboxing events and the like - and would be a good place to start. On the other hand, I dont know if I'm ready for that level yet. The washington throwdown will help me decide on if to go or not.
My question is this though, does this seem like a legit even to try to compete in? It looks like your average point sparring xma form competition, but it does have full contact. Thanks for the advice in advance guys.
My guns bigger than Scrapper's!

It will be GAY but go and have fun.
I went to SUPERGRANDS in ALT a few years ago. It was one of the SADDEST display of MA I've seen. Alcohol is eased the pain.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

Looking into it myself. If it were in fact the "Superbowl of Martial Arts" I have to ask myself why is it being held in a high school gym?
Any word on the entrance fees?

If you train at a good school, you'll find most people's FC continuous isn't as hard as your medium... I'd say do it.

There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

we can talk about it more at the throwdown, Mark. Anyways, its pretty much still a point game HOWEVER you can hit full contact (above the waist) and a KO is a win. There is no stopping of the action unless an opponent is downed. Otherwise, you just keep going for 2 minutes. Gloves are provided by the competition, I'm not sure how big they are. All targets about the waist are ok (except spin and the back of the head) this includes the face.

That's it I'm in!
I also have 2 younger students who want to enter. looks like another road trip. They pidgeon hole Kempo and Kaj. does that mean we can't fight other styles as well or in full contact is it style vs style. Are the black belts thrown into the full contact arena with the colored belts too? I sent these questions with no answer yet. any insight would be helpful. I haven't done a tourney in ages. Sweeps, reaps, throws, kazushi allowed? :boxing:

I think this is the one my instructor keeps talking about. 16 oz gloves, and I think you only go against people of your own rank. Last time he was able to get a grappling division in there, and he's pushing for it again.
