What Is Yin Yang Kumite?
Yin Yang Kumite is a new twist on the old King of the Mountain game.
Within an octagon, the sport is played at three levels of competition.
At its most basic, deemed Yin Yang Wrestling, two opponents face off
and attempt to push or pull each other out of bounds.
New players and children younger than nine years of age are restricted to this group.
At the intermediate level, two throwing techniques are added to
the repertoire: Uki-Otoshi, where the opponent is pulled forward onto the mat
and Osoto-Gari, a reaping technique that drops the opponent onto his back.
Advanced players engage in Y2-Kombat. At this stage a third
throwing technique which is a counter move to Osoto-Gari is added.
Matches are fast paced, high energy, and judging from the big smiles
even on the faces of the losers, lots of fun.
