World Martial Arts Tournament
The World Martial Arts Tournament was a regular martial arts tournament pitting the best martial artists on Earth against one another. Various Z Warriors have competed in the tournament. The first tournament was held May 7 in AD 650. Their schedule has varied since then.
- From the 1st to 21st tournaments, they were held every five years. (AD 650 (1st) to 750 (21st))
- From the 21st to the 23rd, every three years. (750 (21st) to 756 (23rd))
- The Tournaments were not held for several years after the 23rd, resuming again with the 24th in 767.
- After the 24th, the Tournaments were not held again for seven years, resuming with the 25th in 774. The 25th also introduced a junior division, although this practice was apparently dropped in future tournaments.
- There were four years between the 25th and 26th (778).
- After the 26th, the tournaments resumed their three-year schedule. (778 (26th) to 790 (30th))
- A 60th World Martial Arts Tournament was held in 890); apparently the schedule adjusts again (perhaps several times) after the 30th.
