Please note in the event that there's only one competitor in a category they will be asked to move up a category etc….

BONUS POINTS… 10 Points will be awarded to every competitor that enter the final Kwon Grand Slam Series Event  Sunday 9th June 2019 No.3 this is to encourage everybody to turn up and compete keeping the series ‘live’ right down to the wire.

FAIR PLAY POLICY

The Kwon Grand Slam will be introducing several changes in the 2019 series

Aimed at making the tournament fair to all.

All competitors must have a valid up to date martial arts licence and it must contain proof of grade, we want to STOP competitors from competing in divisions that they should not be in.

All fighters will be weighed at each event.

K.G.S wants a level playing field for all and feel that the novice divisions are

Being ‘manipulated’ this will not be allowed to happen in the future.

All competitor/fighters must fill in their club name on the entry form or on the Pre Reg form, can everybody from the same club fill their form in the same way  i.e.... if your club is known by it’s initials that’s how it should be filled in, this way fighters from the same club can be kept apart on the draw sheet.

KGS RULES…WKU Rules in general with some modifications. view at www.wkuworld.com click here

We use the standard sport martial arts rules and scoring system, however the KGS promoters want to encourage the flare and the skill back into the sport.

Can all referees and coaches make themselves familiar with the rules and the slight changes that we are using at the KGS…remember this is to make our sport more exciting and bring back the skill and make more entertaining for the spectator.

  1. NO ‘BACK FIST’ TO THE BODY.
  2. DROP SWEEP’S ARE ALLOWED ( below the calf )
  3. SWEEP & FOLLOW UP will be two points
  4. SWEEP & LOSS OF BALANCE AND FOLLOW UP, will be two points
  5. FIGHTER ON FLOOR CAN BE SCORED ON, within 3 seconds, punch only

EXITS: 1st Exit – Verbal Warning 2nd Exit – Warning on board official 3rd Exit –  Minus 1 Point 4th Exit – Minus 1 point 5th Exit – Disqualified

If an attacking/advancing fighter is blitzing or making a forward attack & therefore ‘pressing’ the fight and it is his momentum that takes him off the area this is not deemed which means no exits no warnings shall be given.


As part of the KGS ‘fair play policy’ we will be using referees from VARIOUS ASSOCIATIONS… no abusive behaviour towards officials will be tolerated in any way.

And we actively encourage all referees to work together in an attempt to raise the standard of tournaments in England, there's is no politics and we welcome all clubs, associations!! etc.

We would like to have regular training days to bring new officials on board and also for current referees to keep their standards high.

Kwon Grand Slam Event management team...we welcome your support
