Open Hungar Kung Fu full contact tournament, Washington State
The tournament is in Bellingham, WA, an hour and a half North of Seattle. Date: July 29th.
Here's some information I pulled off another forum:

> Sifu Lane broke it down for me:

I'm pretty sure some Seattle Kyokushin guys (and gals) are going to fight in it.

This is interesting.

I'd go, but I'd get my ass kicked with my TKD skillz.

Absolutely no groin or head contact
No contact to face or groin, light contact to head
No direct contact to face or groin, light contact to head and face
Sweeps are allowed, three seconds to follow after sweep to make your score
Body contact legal
Contact to legs legal
Any outburst of uncontrolled emotion is grounds for dismissal. "No Exceptions!"
Note: There will be a Wu Shu Division and a hard style Division and a non-traditionalDivision.
And I don't see anything about not being allowed to choke people out :icon_thum .Jesus loves you. I think you're an asshole.

I might have missed it in the rules - is this with gloves or bare-fist (Kyokushin style)?
If it's no head contact plus gloves that is lame.
