    the only bad thing about naga is that if no one is in your expirience group you get moved up. That happened to me last year in this tournament and I had to do expert, but I won so it was aight!!

    I agree, I do not care how long you been training or whatever, but if you already win in an advanced or expert division, you should man up and go to the next level up.

    i was pre-registered for adult featherweight expert, and adult lightweight purple belt, but unfortunately my injury got in the way, but i'll be there to watch and help coach some of my team-mates. if anyone wants to meet up i shouldn't be too hard to spot. i'll probably have some crazy colored hair and a broken arm

    You cant go back to intermediate if you have medaled in a higher division.

    You shouldnt anyway, because thats a pussy move, but its also against the rules.

    last year they gave belts to all first place winners... which i felt was a bit stupid because it likely inspired a lot of sandbagging. i personally think they should give swords to all first place winners, but only expert/advanced winners should receive belts. i think this would encourage more people to step up rather than down
