We will be introducing Vortex continuous sparring divisions at this years TKO State Finals!  This is an Open division for all rank, gender and age. Trophies will be awarded to all 1st-3rd place winners!  Competitors will be separated by size at the ring and matched up accordingly. If there is an unfair size advantage, then the smaller competitor has the right to fight up in size or not. If there are no competitors in the size range, then the lone competitor is declared winner.  You can register by mail or online at www.TKOLeague.com as one event or include Vortex as an additional division.
