Talk about mixed martial arts: Kickboxing, stick fighting and board breaking will all be categories in the 21st annual National Blackbelt League Super Grands World Games. Thousands of black-belt martial artists will compete for world titles at the games, which take place for a whole week starting Sunday, December 26, at the Doubletree Hotel. Youth, adults and seniors will compete for a total of 113 black-belt world titles in different divisions. Winners in each division will be awarded NBL rings and gold-embroidered black belts. The tournament culminates in six overall World Grandchampionships, all held on the last day in an Awards Presentation Super Show with $4,000 in prize money. One exciting thing about the tournament is that even an unknown amateur can become an instant star. Also, if you still need some training or have never fought before, you can take part in a free stick-fighting class for beginners on Sunday at noon.

The 21st annual NBL Super Grands World Games happen December 26-31. A daily pass for spectators costs $22 and a weekly pass costs $45. Doubletree Hotel, 2001 Point West Way. For more information, call (716) 763-1111 or visit
