    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    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:


    > http://laneshungkuen.com/
    >
    > You can download the application and tournament info from there.
    > Sifu Lane broke it down for me:
    >
    > There will be weight classes and 3 belt distinctions: beginner,
    > intermed. and advanced. Beginner is 1 round 3 minutes, intermediate, 2
    > rounds 3 min and advanced 3x3. Contact to head will be "light,"
    > however we know how that escalates. There's supposedly an ass crack
    > full of masters coming to demonstrate and have their people compete.
    > This is, I might add, the weekend after our summer meeting. If anyone
    > wants to stay a week and kick some heads in I'd encourage it.
    >
    > Head guard, mouth guard and shin guard required. Other pads optional.
    > A word of advice: Hung Gar people practice hard style kung fu so their
    > blocks will be especially hard. Toughening your shins and forearms up
    > would be a good idea. Any other questions?


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

    This is interesting.

    I was not aware that Kung Fu styles held full vontact tournaments these days apart from San Shou.

    Sparring Rules
    Beginners:
    Absolutely no groin or head contact
    Intermediate:
    No contact to face or groin, light contact to head
    Advanced:
    No direct contact to face or groin, light contact to head and face
    All divisions

    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.
    Not exactly "full" contact...

    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.

    Gloves?

    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.
