I really wanted to go this year too, but my boo boo put me out of training for too long.

Knees and elbows are allowed now, as far as I know. And, I also think they give you like 5 seconds or something to secure a standing lock, if that's what you want to do.
But, that's as the rules were explained to me by a class B ref... so, I don't know if that's super duper official.

i am going to be cornering for 2 fighters from my school.
Here's a video of a match from a few years back.
i never had to do a form to show that i'm a "real" kung fu guy. they said nothing about that when i called them to go over the rules last week. the one thing that you DO need is a doctor's note saying that you are fit to compete (oh, and proof of insurance.)
for me, the only issues i have with that tournament and its rules are:
1) the gloves are retarded. they use "cobra mitts' and should switch to the CSI mma safety gloves.
2) the face cage. it's there because of knees and elbows to the head being allowed, but it doesn't really protect the face much, and it really restricts the fighter's vision. also, just about every single fighter hurts their hands when punching it (the gloves are partially the problem here too.) just use boxing headgear with chin protection and cheek protection, and if you have to, take out the elbows (no one ever uses them anyway due to the next issue i have.)
3) the "no holding and hitting" rule, which means that essentially it's hard to score with elbows and knees, cause anytime you are in a really good opportunity to throw one, you are in the clinch, and therefore holding and hitting.
errant - answer my PM and let's plan on meeting up at the tournament if you can make it."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art. You don't truly love your children unless you allow them to get punched in the face." - chi-conspiricy

I've always found elbows and knees outside the clinch to be an odd thing.
