THIS IS A NON-CONTACT TOURNAMENT
The printed rules clearly state: “Each contestant is responsible for the control of his/her techniques.” All competitors must wear protective equipment that is required by the referee counsel; gloves, helmet, mouth guard & groin protection (males). Other protective equipment can be worn as long as it is allowed by the chief referee. The wearing of the equipment is for the protection of the participants, NOT TO PROMOTE CONTACT. Contact violations will be given by the referee panel. 3 violations will result in disqualification. The Referee, with a majority vote, may elevate a contact violation if necessary, including up to disqualification. Any contestant maliciously causing injury to their opponent will be disqualified immediately and will be awarded Shikaku, exit from the tournament.
The Franco Cup will feature a beautiful 3D die cast medal for all 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in all kata, kobudo, and kumite divisions. Amazing awards will be presented to the “Most Supportive School”. Beautiful awards for Grand Champion Kata & Kumite and Jr. Grand Champion Kata & Kumite.
