From the preliminaries, participants were sectioned into their respective categories. If the participant managed to complete Moshikame and above, they were in the Intermediate category. If they managed to hit Bird and above, they were in the Advanced category. If not, they remained in the Beginner category.
Each category had participants battling it out to be crowned the champion, and here we have the results.
