-WHAT IS A SHIAI: A Shiai is a kumite training event that pre-dates the modern tournament. Students from different dojos compete against one another for the purpose of learning from their mistakes. Matches are held, points are scored, and winners are declared as in a tournament. However after a match each competitor may continue to fight regardless of the outcome. Athletes may compete against people of all ages and ranks to test themselves against a wide range of opponents. Children may fight adults; beginners may fight intermediate and advanced belts. In a typical tournament a competitor may fight 3 or 4 times if they win all of their matches; in a Shiai they may fight 10 or more times regardless of whether they win or lose!
