COMPETITION AGE: Players competing for Kaizen Points must compete at whichever age they are on January 1, 2020 or the age they will become during 2020 and must compete at that age for the entire Competition Year!

See Kaizen Rules at a Glance or the Kaizen Rule Book - "Legal Age Rule".

COACHING: A Coach's Pass is for Sparring divisions ONLY and only when your player is "On Deck" or "Up". A Coach's Pass is non-transferable and must be present and visible when in the Coach's area. Only one (1) Coach is allowed in the Coach's area and players may be penalized for Coaching violations. See Kaizen Rules at a Glance or the Kaizen Rule Book - "Coaching" and "Invalid Coaches Pass".


NOTE: Admission into the tournament as a player / spectator will be monitored at all times. We reserve the right to refuse admittance and to revoke the entry or pass (purchased or otherwise) of any Player, Spectator, Coach, or Judge if deemed that there is a violation of the Rules and Regulations of the event. Fines will be strictly enforced and levied against those who fail to follow the rules and who do not behave in the proper manner. Please keep this in mind by going through the proper channels and exhibiting good behavior when lodging or responding to a complaint. 

RULES PRESENTATION: The Rules Presentation is open to all attendees (officials, players, instructors, parents, etc.) so everyone is aware of the rules and may ask questions at that time. 

Rules Presentation: 9:30 am

JUDGES & REFEREES: Your valuable experience as Martial Artists and Judges is greatly appreciated! Please check-in at the Official's Registration table for your ring assignment and your complementary floor pass for entry onto the tournament floor.
