Black Belt (9 attacks)

- Two circular punches to the face
- Horizontal strike to torso with escrima stick
- Defense against two attackers, attacks are optional but must be simultaneous
- kick (any height and style is acceptable)
- Overhead knife attack
- Knife held to throat from the front
- Gun to the body from the front

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.

Tournoi International de Paris (TIP) 2015

This annual weekend LGBT sports event featured a series of martial arts / combat seminars hosted by the Paris judo club Makoto. Additionally, there were social events every evening culminating in an extravagant performance by sports participants at the Sunday night closing party.
Paris has 4 LGBT martial arts / combat clubs: Makoto judo & jujitsu; Niji kan karate; Paname boxing; Paris Lute.
All day Saturday and Sunday morning was busy with 88 participants in seminars from each of the Paris clubs plus demonstrations of some of their specific skills/excellence. There were also guest seminars from visiting instructors including London UK ishigaki jujitsu, knife fighting from Anchorage, Alaska and a Swiss judo competitor/instructor.
IAGLMA accepted an invite from the TIP organising team to run a seminar on the IAGLMA rules for competition. Black belts are required to attend 2 judging clinics to be eligible to judge in IAGLMA Gay Games competition. Plans are already well developed to ensure the martial arts event at Gay Games X Paris will be a significant event on the LGBT martial arts calendar. Ensuring that there are suitably trained judges is an important part of this process as Paris reach out to martial artists around the world to attend Paris 2018 in record numbers.
Discussions are already underway to include IAGLMA judging clinics at TIP 2016 and Pink Power events. The Paris martial arts / combat clubs are planning to use TIP 2017 as a competition weekend in association with IAGLMA to help everyone get ready for Paris 2018.
