Format & Rules:
The Good Fight’s: Dog Fight in Dover will have both Gi and No-Gi Divisions. The competition will follow a modified double elimination format. What this means is that if you lose your first match you will go into a ‘consolation bracket’. Another way of explaining our bracketing is that it is a ‘Single Elimination’ tournament with a ‘Consolationi Round’. Divisions include Kids, Teens, Men & Women.
We will do our best to break up the adult competitors by age; however, if there is a low turn-out of competitors over 35 years of age we may have to bracket then into the younger adult men.
Our rules have been developed with safety and sportsmanship as our highest priority to ensure a fun and safe experience for all.

The Good Fight has worked out special pricing with the Sheraton Dover Hotel. The cost for a room is only $85.
This is a GREAT price considering how nice the place is. The best part is you can check in on Friday, get yourself registered and weighed-in at the hotel and then watch the Pro-Jitsu fights at 7:00 pm. Finally, you’ll wake-up on Saturday morning and go downstairs for your competition. You can even chill-out and relax in your room if your division will be awhile before it gets called.
The convenience doesn’t get any better than this venue and we set it up this way to attrack a LOT of long-distance competitors…especially for the Pro-Jitsu divisions.
You can call the hotel directly to reserve your room for only $85 per night; or you can also reserve your room when you go through the online Pre-Registration. It’s really up to you how you want to do it. Either way is fine and here is the hotel info:
