It doesn't take a great deal of tournament savvy to run a single-elimination tourney...and if you want 8 fighters for your stage production--ask for volunteers.
But I strongly recommend that you listen to the Barone...try it on Friday OR at a fighter practice to wring the bugs out!
Personally, I would rather use Cynthia's idea...and intersperse some "slo-mo" sessions throughout the day to let the crowd understand what we are doing. It's just heavy fighter kata...and we do it at fighter practice to see how to improve.
...and you'd best be prepared for the complaints from the other 80% of the fighters who aren't "in the Tourney".
...brick by brick

We are happy to see everyone’s input
on this, and if we all work in a positive direction, we shall indeed present a
FANTASTIC Demo Tourney.
Here is a rough idea of what we have in
mind, and we do need the help of someone who is Tourney-savvy to tighten up the
format, chose Fighters, keep it fast paced and make whatever changes they feel
are needed to make it GREAT.
We start with 8 Fighters, a Herald, a
Marshal and Rope Walkers. At EXACTLY 2 pm, the Herald leads the Fighters
and Marshal onto the List and makes introductions. As soon as they clear
the Field, the first pair comes out, is introduced by the Herald and lays
on. Now this is where we need to use some WWE-type showmanship and time
management. As the Fighters fight, the Rope Walkers serve as colour
commentators, keeping the spectators motivated and informed. After 4 bouts,
we are down to 4 Fighters and very quickly move into the Semis, and then into
the Final. Now if only the BCS could figure this out J
Again, this will all play out in a 30-45
Does someone have a Herald’s Trumpet
or something similar for the Entrance of the Fighters? How about a cloth
Litter to haul “Dead Fighters” off the Field?
