How big is the tournament?

Last four ShinnMuKwans average around 190. With using Daedo system we had more black belts last couple years, such that we usually have 2-3 weight divisions for adult black belts sparring.

How fair are the judges?

We usually assign no more than 2 judges from each school in each ring to minimize bias and appearance of bias. While there's always one or two people that complain no matter what, we have received many compliments and feedbacks in the past about the fairness of the judges and the system/organization of our tournaments.
