Self-Defense:

Competitor will have 3 minutes to perform 3 to 5 self-defense sequences. The competitor must demonstrate each sequence twice, once full speed and once in slow-motion showing the mechanics of the techniques and what exactly is being done (manipulations and strikes that may not be seen full speed). The competition ring for this division will be matted. Each competitor must have their own partner/attacker "Uke". All partners/attackers or "Uke's" must report to the ring with the competitor. If your partner is competing in a different ring, please let the ring coordinators know and we will make sure we accommodate you. There are no restrictions on the rank, age, size of your partner. Each competitor may only have one attacker for each defense, and must have the same attacker for their entire performance. Weapons may be used, only knives, guns & sticks/bats are allowed. There should be no live weapons only training safety weapons.

The Self-Defense divisions will be judged on the EFFECTIVENESS of the technique and the competitors ability to control their attacker and the situation efficiently and collected. Flashy movie style self-defenses will not score high if they lack street practicality.
