There is an optional dinner planned for those that wish to eat at the event as well as get front row seating for the spectacular night show. At the night show, all of the division champions will receive their awards, but before they do that, they will compete on stage for one of the coveted 2016 Overall Grand Champion awards.
To be eligible for one of the 26 Overall Grands, competitors must win their division title, then compete in a grand runoff during the day. In forms, the top 3 highest scoring competitors in each grand runoff will compete in the night show. In point fighting, the last two competitors in each grand will advance to the night show.
Continuous Sparring and Self-defense Forms are not eligible for overall grands.
