I have been training kickbox and mua thai for about 6 months now (did pankration for a 6 months prior) and this weekend I am going to enter in a tournament called the Western Canadian Martial Arts Challange. I will be enetering this division: (m) (18 +) White - Green (174-200) which is just a adult beginner division with the weightclass of 174-200. I am 205 right now, but will be down to less than 200 for the weekend. I believe I have to wear headgear, mouthguard, shin pads etc... however, in the rules I read something about being carded for using too much force? Is it common for people to be knocked out in these tournaments? I believe there is one 2 min round and the winner continues on. Anyone know what I should expect?
