There are mini-championships which take place in the shade and even official tournaments like the Dekinnoka or Kondo’s Battle. These are the sort of “Fight Club” robots. People come from all over Japan with their mini-humanoid warriors and put them in tournaments. Their robots are more sophisticated because of their agility and their ability to bring diverse and varied shots. These war machines are guided by their mentors, placed around the ring during fights. The battle becomes a hobby robots increasingly popular in Japan and rules are also changing.
