Rank Definitions

Novice – White, Yellow, Orange Belt
Intermediate – Blue, Green, Purple Belt
Advanced – Red, Brown Belt
Black Belt – Um, Black Belt

You must compete at the highest rank you’ve attained in any style, even if the school you train in now has assigned you a lower rank. It is unfair for someone that held a third-degree black belt, but chose to start over in another style, to compete as a brown belt, for example.

This is a traditional martial arts event and appropriate attire is expected. This may include a traditional martial arts uniform, sport-style martial arts uniform or other similar clothing. T-shirts are not permitted as a top layer in any division. No crop-top shirts, bare chests, bathing suits or any similar clothing will be permitted in competition. Shorts are permitted only in Fusion Fighting.
