  1. BREAKING TECMO KUMITE NEWS: After weighing our options on what will be a very busy weekend in downtown Detroit, we have decided that a shift of venue best fits our interests. The tournament will now be held at the same venue it had been the past two years: Detroit Beer Company 1529 Broadway Detroit, MI 48226 Tel: 313-962-1529 https://www.detroitbeerco.com/Directions The tournament will no longer be held at The Old Shillelagh. Detroit Beer Co. is located about 5 blocks northwest of The Old Shillelagh. It would be appreciated if everyone could please help spread the word, and tell anyone you know that is coming, or those who have not signed up yet, who were considering attending! In terms of parking the same applies with meter parking, and full day price on lots throughout the city, as there are a number of each on Broadway. The Opera House parking structure may be your best bet, which is essentially right across the street from the venue, at the intersection of Broadway and John R. If parking at the Greektown Casino structure, the venue is about 7 block walk northwest, or you can take the People Mover to the Broadway stop for only $ 0.75 I believe. The unknown is whether Greektown will be charging for parking or not. For those who will be in town Friday night, there should be a group gathering there, to get a jump on some early set up, and get some games in, late Friday night. I unfortunately will not be able to join until the early morning hours Friday night/Saturday morning, and Joe Moskwa, aka, Joe Mosqua, aka The Shark Watksi, aka Joe Pasta will be your Friday night contact. Hit him up on the Facebook page to discuss Friday night! https://www.facebook.com/groups/tecmokumitedetroit/ We do apologize for any inconvenience, and feel as if this move is in the best interest of the tournament as a whole. Thanks guys! Any questions at all, you know how to get a hold of me. See you guys this weekend! -- Eric O'Dell Detroit Tecmo Tournament Director [email protected] Twitter: @tecmodell42
  2. It is Tecmo Kumite week! We are officially just 4 days away from Detroit's Tecmo Kumite VII! Detroit Beer Company 1529 Broadway Detroit, MI 48226 Tel: 313-962-1529 https://www.detroitbeerco.com/Directions Saturday, March 9 Doors: 10am; Kickoff: 11am RULES/FORMAT: Similar to years past, but there is a subtle adjustment to cointoss/matchup calling. I will send out a separate email containing the rules page, in text, and via word document following this email. Please be sure to read through it, and take it all in, as there just simply is not enough time to go over it in much detail day-of. EQUIPMENT: If you are helping out the tournament cause with any equipment, please arrive as early as you can to help set up. For lending a complete playing station, there will be extra raffle tickets coming your way! Please be sure to label every piece of equipment you have! I will bring a label maker for everyone to use, but who knows if the battery will run out, or it runs out of paper, etc, so it's best just to do it before you leave. Also know that your equipment is expected to remain in play for, in the very least, the duration of the swiss rounds, and most likely beyond that. To take in the full essence of the Kumite, is to stay the through the finale, and root on your fellow Tecmo warriors anyway! Thank you so much for helping out the tourney cause! We cannot do this thing without you guys! RAFFLE: With your paid entry into Kumite VII, you will be given 5 complementary raffle tickets. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $1 each, plus an extra ticket for each $5 spent. We've added a few items to the raffle prize pool, with possibly more to come! We will be giving away all of these prizes in some capacity whether during the raffle or contests of some kind. These prizes include, and are not limited to: DON MAJKOWSKI AUTO'd JERSEY WARREN MOON OILERS JERSEY ATARI RETRO SYSTEM NES CART: WRESTLEMANIA TECMO BO INFANT TEE (2) TOMEE NES USB ADAPTER RAMS TODD GURLEY LONG SLEEVE TECMO TEE BARRY SANDERS STARTING LINEUP HYPERKIN RETRON1 RAIDERS KNIT HAT BRONCOS SCRIPT HAT We are currently up to 39 players officially signed up for Kumite VII. If anyone you know is not on this list, and would like to be, please be sure to have them sign up today! Payment is not required at the time of filling out the registration, but it will save you $5 by not having to pay upon entry. Get signed up now! https://bit.ly/2RSIBwe Save $5 before 3/8!

If dropping off equipment first, you then proceed down Monroe St. and it will be on your left as you approach the service drive. It SHOULD be free to park on Saturday morning, as I believe they only charge for special events. Parking meters are another option. They charge, I believe $1.15/hr, and can best be managed via the ParkDetroit app, rather than feeding the meter in my opinion. Lastly, the pay lots are all over the place, and not hard to find, but usually start at $20 for the day. Lastly, the MGM Casino parking structure is always FREE, however it's a bit over a mile away - so you'd have to take an Uber or Lyft, or take one of the scooters, which are fun, and affordable. Bird and Lime are two of the scooters (apps) I've used. I am sure I've missed some things, or if you have any questions at all, you know how to get a hold of me. I cannot wait! See you guys Saturday morning for #KUMITEVII!

  12. #KumiteVI took place on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Detroit Beer Co. in Downtown Detroit. 37 participants took to the 8-bit gridiron for 6 rounds of swiss play, which seeded 20 participants to select the team of their destiny. Matthew O'Toole earned his 2nd consecutive Kumite Cup Title by defeating Francis Buennagel HOU over KC. Toolie defeated Mort for the first time in five attempts in a Tecmo major finale. Congrats to both competitors on great days! Rounding out our top four, finishing in the money were David Thompson, of Seattle, WA; and Louis Buennagel of Buffalo, NY. Brad Smigielski, Livonia, MI defeated Scott Duhl of Commerce, MI for the consolation tournament title. Congratulations to the winners, and to everyone else for their contributions in making Kumite VI an amazing day. Thank you so very much! We are always looking to improve upon each tournament for the following year, and years to come! If you have any feedback of any kind, please take a moment to drop me an email or a DM, on ways that we could improve your personal experience at Tecmo Kumite Detroit. There are certainly a number of things on that list for next year, including handling of guest tabs throughout the day - to both guest, and host, as we got stuck with a handful of them at days' end. Lastly, Matt O'Toole seemingly misplaced his winter jacket. It's a big black jacket, that had a pair of gloves, and a Kettering University hat in it. If anyone accidentally took them home with them, please drop me a line so we can get it back to him! Again, thank you so very much from the bottom of your heart for all of your contributions in making Tecmo Kumite Detroit the best event that it possibly can be. You guys are the bomb! 'Til next time Kumiteers!
  13. Vikings select: NYG WR2/ DB2: Baker / Collins
  14. Vikings select: Roy Green and Lonnie Young

  16. Stay tuned in regards to a Friday meet up. While we'd love to have everyone Friday night at the venue, as it makes so much sense to utilize that time to get set up for the next day, we just can't guarantee it ahead of time. They may have something booked in the same room for Friday Night. You'll be receiving an email update by midweek and we'll be sure to address this and everything Kumite! See you next weekend! #LongLiveTecmo
  17. Good morning #kumite! We have decided on a slight adjustment to matchups one can call in the preliminary stages/6 rounds of swiss play (traditional group play). In each round of the Swiss portion of the tournament, a tier of teams will be randomly drawn. Each tier of teams will be used at least once during the Swiss rounds. All games for that round must involve teams from the determined tier. TEAM TIERS The five tiers of teams used for the Swiss rounds are being shamelessly borrowed from the Tomczak Bowl tournament (run by Beef Juice). The tiers are… Tier 1: SF, NYG, BUF, HOU, PHI Tier 2: PHI, KC, RAI, RAM, CHI, MIA, CIN Tier 3: MIA, CIN, MIN, DET, WAS, SD, TB, DEN Tier 4: TB, DEN, JET, NO, DAL, ATL, PHX, PIT Tier 5: PHX, PIT, CLE, GB, SEA, NE, IND Rules page has been adjusted, and emailed out to registrants upon the next email blast. Just 9 days left, until #kumiteVI! Party-Pants list updated. We are just 9 days away from #KumiteVI on 03/03/18 at Detroit Beer Co in Downtown Detroit. Get signed up today! [email protected] for details.
