The tournament is open to Military ( active, reserve, IRR), Law Enforcement, Fire Dept./ EMT and their civilian sponsored guests. ( Civilian adult competitors need to be accompanied/ sponsored by someone from the Military, Law Enforcement or Fire Dept. to compete).
If we cannot fill all the weight brackets we will accept non sponsered civilian "walk on's" to compete (for the pre-registration fee of $30) SO if you plan on watching bring your gear anyway.
We will also have a teenage (14 to 17 yrs.) division, open to all teens, with or without a sponsor.
All Competitors need a cup and mouthpiece. Grappling/ MMA style gloves will be on hand if you don't have your own. Wrestling shoes and other protective gear is optional. Competitors may wear traditional Martial Arts attire or T-Shirt and shorts. No open pockets or zippers allowed.
