    WEKAF Championships

    For those FMA kids out there this is coming up. I have never been to one of these but I plan on going to the Denver one to be a Spectator. I will let you know if it is the typical game of whack-a-mole that most FMA competitions are. It should be fun to check it out

    Wekaf is decent enough, i've competed a bit in it and its pretty fun. Its full contact continous sparring, usually 3 rounds of 1 minute each with a light rattan stick and a padded jacket, helmet and gloves. 10 point must scoring based on aggressivenes, ring control, defense etc. Good stuff if youre just getting into full contact stick fighting.



      Sweet thanks for the info Greify.


        Should be fun. I've fought in a couple of their matches before. They tend to reward raw aggression, which often leads to a sloppy pillowfight, but I know that they were thinking of grading defensive skill more highly. This would definitely be a good thing.




            Thrusts are disallowed in wekaf, and as Ryno said they do tend to reward raw aggression. Which isnt necessarily a bad thing, you just have to keep yourself honest with the defense.
