Here are some of the questions that we think you will want to know. If you don’t see an answer here please contact us as no doubt someone else will be asking the same question.
1. Will I have to fight?
Yes, this event is a full-contact fight event with the finals at the end of the program.
2. Are there selections?
No. However we are only taking on people who haven’t fought before and participants must have had no competitive experience. We want this to be as fair as possible.
3. If I have martial arts experience can I register?
Yes, as long as you haven’t fought before.
4. I have done Fight Girls before, can I do it again?
Yes, as long as you haven’t fought anywhere else after your Fight Girls fight, we will match you up with another fighter around your level. Once you have completed three fights you can challenge for one of our Fight Girls Title Belts.
5. Do I have to train in Silverdale or Warkworth?
Yes. We will be allowing people to train at Dynamic Martial Arts centres for this Fight Girls, but the compulsory training session every Sunday is at the Silverdale training centre – times to be confirmed.

Registration will cost $30, plus training fees. These are set by the clubs involved.
7. Can I train at all the Silverdale/Warkworth sessions?
Yes. We suggest getting in as many of the fight related sessions as possible
8. How often do I have to train?
You must attend at least two weekday training sessions and the compulsory Sunday.
9. Are there any other costs?
Yes, you will be responsible to provide a medical clearance certificate and blood clearance from your doctors. We do also recommend buying your own protective gear. This gear will be available at a very good price as Dynamic Martial Arts members get very good rates.

10. If I don’t buy my own protective gear can I still fight?
Yes, for eliminations and finals gear will be provided if needed. However we highly recommend you purchase protective gear to train in.
11. Eliminations? Does this mean I may not get a fight?!
Everyone who registers will get to fight, however depending on the number who register we reserve the right to have an eliminations event, then only those who win their elimination bouts will fight in the main event.

Senior members of Dynamic Martial Arts will be the main fight squad coaches, we will name the team coaches once the program is under way.
