The attacks for the IAGLMA Self Defence competition have been updated in response to feedback from judges, competitors, coaches and spectators.
The format of the competition has been retained but different attacks have been selected for each category.
The emphasis is that the competition format will allow the competitors to display their style’s technique to counter a variety of attacks.
Competitors and attackers have the flexibility to prepare their specific attacks from the general descriptions.

Competitors are encouraged to bring their own attacker but it is usual for pairings to be made at events which enables people to enter the Self Defence competition if they have arrived without a partner.

Guide to Competitors and Judges
- Competitors are expected to demonstrate 3 defences to attacks then pause to allow judges scoring.
- If the attack falls outside the description then the judges will score the technique on its merits (out of 10) and then deduct 1 mark.

TIP 2017 Combat Sports Prepare for Gay Games 10

The Paris Combat Sports team completed a successful weekend of events as their contribution to TIP 2017 (Tournoi International de Paris).
In preparation for Gay Games 10, which take place in Paris in August 2018, each of the 4 sports teams organised specific competitions.
They covered the variety of categories which will available next year including freestyle wrestling, team kata forms, point sparring, boxing, judo ne waza and many more.
All the competitions and additional workshops and seminars were hosted in the one building with many sport specific resources.
All the divisions were competitive which gave the organisers, volunteers, judges, referees and competitors valuable experience ahead of their Gay Games competitions
in what promises to be one of the largest participations of these sports at any Gay Games.

Previous quadrennial Gay Games have included martials arts competition under the IAGLMA (International Association of Gay and Lesbian Martial Artists) rules which featured kata, sparring and self defence.
Paris will expand the options by including team kata and pairs demonstrations.
They will also introduce judo and boxing categories to Gay Games competitions.

Wrestling has been hugely popular at previous Games and will be located within the national Judo stadium alongside the other combat sports.

There were 80 participants in TIP 2017 across all the categories and successful competitions were concluded in each of the 4 sports.
In addition, there were a variety of workshops led by senior instructors aimed at enhancing participants’ skills and understanding of the competition formats.

Immediately prior to TIP 2017 there were 97 people registered for the combat sports at Gay Games 9.
This is a strong registration fourteen months prior to the event and it is anticipated the number more than double over the next year.

The combat sports competition promises to be the most expansive and diverse offering seen in Gay Games history and the experience gained through TIP 2017
will enable the organisers to ensure that participants have a great Gay Games experience.
