Notes for Site Visitors
Before showing up at any tournament it is a good idea to do some research on that organization through the links above
to find out what is required to participate in their tournaments.  While most do not require memberships, some do.  Also,
the requirements for competing in sparring divisions throughout the various leagues can be different.  This could be
anything from what is allowed to be worn as far as color and style of gi, to what is legal as far as scoring.
