As 2020 begins, we enter a new era of live gloving competitions.
For too long, the four kingdoms have felt the tensions rise as the hunger for a real competition grows and the desire to have a new champion crowned becomes too palpable to ignore.
We are here to bring that to you. We are here to bring you the 4KC.
Everything You Need To Know About the 4KC
4KC is a gloving competition that brings together some of the best and brightest young artists from across the United States. We have divided the US into four regions (Kingdoms) based on the balance of where gloving's most blooming communities are and where to create easy to remember factions.
They are the Island Kingdom, Coastal Kingdom, Mountain Kingdom and River Kingdom.
These factions and separation are PURELY in the spirit of competition, and at the end of the day everyone will be there to celebrate the completion of a successful community experience, regardless of who wins.
For too long the Gloving Community has hungered for a properly managed, UNBIASED and UNAFFILIATED competition with real stakes on the line and real effort to create an experience unlike anything else a glover can experience. The true feeling of community.
We are here to satisfy that hunger. We are You Got Moves and we are here to bring the 4KC.
The Four Kingdoms are regions separated by time zone. Each sitting within their own realm, but craving the feel of real competition.
The Island Kingdom - Hawaii & International Entries
The island kingdom sits isolated from the rest of the land. As a close knit community of talented, hard working and welcoming souls drive to grow the collective presence of their unique and unparalleled style. For too long, the island kingdom has felt the need to prove something. Now, with Contenders of their own to submit, they stand united behind their traveling potential champions.
The Coastal Kingdom - Pacific Time Zone (CA, NV, OR, WA)
lined with beaches, sunshine, bright lights and grand entrances, the Coastal kingdom boasts more founding champions than any other Kingdom. As hosts of the 4KC, the horns are sounding in celebration in an already anticipated victory. However, with new regional winners and online sensations making so many waves from every other kingdom, it is time to see if the founding communities can stack up to their counterparts.
The Mountain Kingdom - Mountain Time Zone (AZ, NM, CO, UT, MT, WY, ID)
High above the coasts, rivers and far closer to the clouds sits the Mountain Kingdom. Forged in stone, snow, and met with much resistance, the Mountain Kingdom is here to stake their claim as the newest forces to be reckoned with. Armed with the might of the mountain winds, they march forth to claim yet another title ready to be added to their collection.
The River Kingdom - Central and Eastern Time Zones - (Literally everything else)
As the largest kingdom in the land, the River Kingdom holds more regional competitions than any other. Producing contender after contender and finding strength in numbers. Will the sheer might of the river be too much for the other contenders? Only time will tell....
AS THE FOUR KINGDOMS COLLIDE.
This tournament will be structured unlike any Gloving Tournament before it, and will feature a redemption factor allowing for those who suffer a loss to still remain in the tournament.
48 glovers will sign up on the day of the tournament to do battle in one-on-one gloving trades. Each show will be judged using the Official IGL Scorecard with all point values doubled. (Each Judge will submit a score of 70pts per glover per show).
Glovers who win their round will move on, and a certain percentage of the highest defeated scores will "EARN REDEMPTION" and move on, depsite the loss During the Open Rounds.
Open Round 1: 24 Winners + 12 Redemption = 36 Glovers Move on
Open Round 2: 18 Winners + 6 Rdemption = 24 Move on
Open Round 3: 12 Winners + NO REDEMPTION = 12 Move on.
*12 Survivors from the Open Rounds Join 12 Invited Contenders for the Playoff Round. Each Survivor will be paired with a Contender.
12 Winners + 4 Redemption = 16 Glovers Move on
Quarter Final Round:
8 Winners + ONE FINAL REDEMPTION = 9 Glovers move on
Semi Final Round:
9 glovers will be split into THREE GROUPS OF THREE.
Glovers will face off in three-way Battles to determine each of the Three Finalists.
All Matches will have the SAME THREE JUDGES - May include Special Guest Judges

There are 48 day-of Tournament Entries that will be available for purchase for $25. These entries will be sold in groups as follows:
First 12 - Will be emailed to a list of anyone who has completed at least one lesson on Yougotmoves.com

Next 20 - Wil be put on the website for sale, first come first serve
Last 4 - Will be held and reserved for contest winners on the Yougotmoves.com Facebook page (These tickets will still need to be purchased)
Why so complicated?
Competitions held in Southern California usually put up all tickets at once and it becomes a free for all based on who is free at the time of sale. We do not like that. We want to do things differently. We want to make sure that everyone has multiple chances to try and get one of these very limited Tournament Entry Passes.
What about the 12 invited Contenders?
SO GLAD YOU ASKED! Voting is now open to select the Contenders from each region that you would like to see invited to the 4KC. Each person is allowed one ballot entry and you may vote for ONE person from EACH kingdom. The 12 invites will break down as follows:

Contenders earn the right to be placed on the ballot by placing first in an online or live competition of 32 or more competitors and a reputable judging team.

iS ANYONE NOT ALLOWED TO COMPETE?
In the interest of fairness and to remove any possibility of a bias interpretation, each 4KC will feature a Host Team. That team will not be allowed to compete, and will supply most of the judges for the tournament.
Additionally, any prospects for that team will also be restricted from competition.
Lastly, all CURRENT Yougotmoves.com coaches will not be allowed to complete in any 4KC events.
