What about tickets for the event? How much will they be?
I notice its two days, will the competitors have to stay for each?
Think the rules will be like Northern Fight League.
No Knees or Elbows, GnP in, 6oz gloves, must include shin guards I assume?

NSAC Weights are as you state unfortunately the weight classes for this tourney were set under WKA K1 rules. I would look to get the weight classes adjusted for future events to come into line with NSAC weights.

So, our Amateur fighters have to fight our Pro B class?
Guy that have fought Semi Pro are excluded? This type of Amateur is a step UP from our Semi Pro.
Think the progression of our Amateur, Semi Pro to Pro needs clarified.
The WKA/ NSAC Amateur is wot we call Pro B. Situated between Semi Pro and Pro. Way above that of our Amateur.

WKA MMA 19th sept
I was wondering about the mma event on the sat, can competitors just attend in the morning for a weigh in, registration, or does this have to be done online before the tournament starts??
And is the comp on sunday just kickboxing or is there a bjj tournament on also mate.
Like i said, very interested in attending but just want to clarify a couple of things first obviously. And the novice levels are open to 85 Kg+ - is this weighed in on the morning of the comp??
I discussed the Amateur rules with the WKA and was told that these rules are taken from the rules used at the WKA world championships. Due to the majority of people not wanting to use these rules and advice from other respected parties it has been decided that the amateur rules will be as follows.
1/ When standing, punches and kicks to the head are allowed.
2/ When standing punches, kicks and knees to the body and legs are allowed.
3/ When on the ground no head strikes are permitted.
4/ When on the ground strikes to the body and legs are allowed.
5/ Neck cranks, heel hooks and spine locks are not permitted.
I apologize for any confusion this may cause.
Weigh in for this event is 0930 Saturday 19th September at the venue, registration on the day is fine but if you can call Stewart to give him your details before hand it would be appreciated.
The Sunday is points Kickboxing and forms there is no BJJ tourney.
Anyone who wants to can enter the K1 or full contact Kickboxing tournament as well, this way if you get put out of one tournament you can continue in another.
Call Stewart on 07711725257 for further details.
Anyone still to register for this tournament on Saturday please call Stewart on 07711725257
