where can i compete in a tournament that is full contact and open to all styles? I know about so cal pankration but what else? IKO tournaments will not except shidokan karate fighters so that rules me out.

Sabaki Challenge in Colorado, also there are other regional Sabak tournaments.
The Sabaki challenge is primarily Enshin but at the black belt level it's open to any style.
Also I dn't know where you are but thery're are open Kyokushin Tournaments in NY. There's one in Rochester, and a another one in Manhattan at MSG I believe.
Also, wrong forum noob!

Style: Kyokushin, other stuff
You have to specify WHAT IKO your are talking about.
IKO1 (Matsui) will accept any other style (TKD, Goju, Shotokan), but not other Kyokushin (or Kyokushin based) organizations. They will accept Seido as Seido fighters were accepted in Sosai's time.
The other IKOs ahve their own regs and are often more open - for instance IKO1 won't go to IKO2/3/4 tournaments but the other sometimes compete together.
IMHO this limit on other Kyokushin groups taking part in Matsui's orgs tournaments is the single biggest issue in IKO1 at the moment. He is so afraid about another groups fighter winning his tournament he has closed doors. Stupid and cowardly. And yes I am an IKO1 fighter.
My suggestion - register yourself with some other (non-Kyokushin derived) organization and enter the IKO tournament. Join a TKD club if you have to. Or make one up. Just DON'T tell the you are from Shidokan. Don't mention it at the tournament and DON'T wear a Shidokan gi.
Or find an IKO2/3/4 or IFK or WOK tournament. Join a local Kyokushin club. Enter on their behalf. There are always ways around the rules. But if you get around them just be careful you don't catch yourself out.
Sociopaths are people too.

Style: Nothing current
Just a thought, but if you're going to ask people for help, don't you think you could spare the effort to actually write more than a three sentence (and I'm using sentence in a very generous sense here) post and actually provide people with enough information to help you?
Basically what your post translated to was a vague and virtually illiterate cyber fart, and you'll get appropriately useless replies in response.
Next time perhaps you could provide people with some idea where the **** you are, what your level of expertise is and in what style(s), a better sense of your competition interests, and some vague sense that you've actually done any work at finding out some info on your own.
I now return you to your regular flaming. Wrong forum newb.
Jesus loves you. I think you're an asshole.
He'll flip ya!

I can't speak for every school around the world.But in the yearly Montreal tournament there are always a few Oyama and (Shin)Kyokushin guys who attend.Especialy if it's weight category.Which is every 4 years i believe.

Yeah the all american open. But it doesn't say what groups so i guess that's fine.
As far as the sabaki, that is invite only.
