  • Please NOTE the Following Rule Changes Starting in 2003.
    1. WEIGH-INS:
      • Weigh-ins will be Friday night ONLY.
    2. CONTENDERS:
      • We would "LIKE" ALL Divisions to have a Minimum of "4" Contenders in them to assure good competition for each Title. HOWEVER, in some cases, this may not be possible. If not, we will do as we have done in the past 4 years of the National Tournament and that is to do one of the following:
        • If there are fighters in the same rule style in the weightclass directly above or directly below we will ask/suggest for the fighters to combine their weightclasses for better and more competition for the National Title. In doing so we will request the weigh division with the less fighters in it to move to the weight division with the most fighters in it.
        • If there are no other fighters in weightclasses directly up or down we will ask/suggest that the fighter(s) in a division of less than 4 fighters move to a different rule style of "Less" weapons. For example, a full contact rules fighter will not be asked to do leg kicks but a leg kick fighter may be asked to do full contact. More likely though, muaythai fighters have moved to International Rules, leg kicks. Few IR or MTR fighters move to Full Contact Rules (Above the waist).
        • If there is no other rule style or next weight division up or down for the fighter(s) to move to, to have the 4 contenders we would like to see, we will leave the division as is, as has been done the last 4 years.
    3. HEADGEAR:
      • In respect to our sponsor (TKO) that will be supplying the equipment for the tournament (Including HEADGEAR), If a fighter chooses to wear a headgear OTHER THAN TKO, they must TAPE OVER the brand of the Headgear shown on the forehead. If the fighter comes to the ring without doing so, they will be disqualified.
    4. PROTESTS:
      • Last year was the first year we did not allow any bout protests. However, as some noted, a few of the bout decisions (4 we believe) deserved at least a second look. This IS NOT a disrespect to our event officials. We are just saying that sometimes a second look is justified. So this year, if a Coach, Trainer or Fighter is serious about protesting a bout decision they may do so. The protest must be made immediately following the bout. We can only hope each requested protest review is seriously justified. To assure each is, each protest fee is $75.00 and must be paid in cash upon the notification of the protest. The Protest fee will be paid to the officials reviewing the protest. The bout will be reviewed by Video by 3 Different Judges from what video is *available. (*) Protesting coaches may be required to provide their own video if one is not available from the IKF. If the reviewing judges vote FOR the announced winner by majority, split or unanimous decision, the decision will stand. The decision will also stand if the scoring judges score the bout a draw. IF the reviewing vote for the announced losing fighter by majority, split or unanimous decision we will request the fighters to fight "1" Determining Round that will be judged by "5" Judges. If the bout is scored a draw, the origional announced winner will be awarded the final win. If a winner is announced, this decision will be FINAL. There will be no protest of the additional round allowed.

HEADGEAR & SHIN PADS
Fighters, Do Not Forget - Headgear & Shin Pads are Both MANDATORY for ALL Fighters in ALL Divisions in This Event.
