The Gen X & cadets had 60 seconds to do each set of kicks, and the juniors, adults and seniors 90 seconds per set. Below is a complete list of the entrants and their results, the numbers in brackets are the kicks per minute rate for everyone. In total between the 12 participants there were 1226 turning kicks, 1219 side kicks & 594 flying front kicks in a maximum of 4 1/2 minutes!!!
