Q: Will there be an absolute?
A: There is no pre-registration for absolute bouts. If time allows for absolute competitions on the day, fighters may register for bouts at the competition (if absolutes are held, registration for these fights will be free). If time allows for absolute divisions, only those who have medalled in their weight divisions will be eligible.
Q: When will my division will fight?
A: Brackets will be created after registration ends on at 11:55 on 24 April. Fight times will not be known until brackets have been created. Therefore, we cannot confirm when any particular division will compete until after registration has finished. We will aim to post brackets and fight times on 25 April.
Q: Can I change my weight category after registration?
A: The weight division you register for is the weight division you must compete at. This is to ensure that the brackets can be accurately created beforehand in order to allow for a smoothly-run competition for everyone on the day.
Q: Have any other competitors in my belt division signed up?
A: You can see a list of all our currently registered competitors are listed here. Scroll down to view the 'attendee list'; the attendee list is automatically updated, real time, as fighters put their names down. As far as sign ups for particular categories, while we cannot guarantee registrants for any particular division, we would be surprised if we did not have fighters register across a broad range of categories; historically we have held white to brown men's divisions as well as women's divisions. We'd also note that, historically, most sign ups occur in the last two weeks before the registration deadline; this year's deadline is 24 April at 11:55pm.
Q: What happens if no one else enters my division?
A: Where there is only one person registered in a category this is our procedure:
- you can choose to fight in the next weight up
- if you are master/senior you can opt to fight in the adult category
- if neither option suits, we'll offer a full refund (less EventBrite's processing fee of £1.27)
Q: Will there be a seniors division?
A: Men's divisions will be split into two age groups, 18-30 and over 30. Women's divisions will not be split by age.
Q: Will the competition be run on a repechage/double elimination.
A: Yes, based on your feedback, a repechage/double elimination system will be used.
Q: Will there be a juvenile or junior division?
A: If there is sufficient interest, then these divisions may be accommodated. If your team wishes to enter junior/juvenile members, please email us at email@example.com. Depending on the response, we may make registration for these divisions available.
