2022 Competitor Music Requirements for the AKA Warrior Cup, Compete World Martial Arts Championships, Battle of Atlanta, U.S. Open ISKA World Martial Arts Championships, and U.S. Capitol Classics/China Open Night Time Finals:
As part of the new collaboration with MAT Action, Black Belt Magazine, Jungo TV, and SportMartialArts — ALL BLACK BELT COMPETITORS will be REQUIRED to use licensed music from Epidemic Sound. This requirement ensures that all competitors’ performances can be distributed and broadcasted utilizing various international, national, and local media services or streaming platforms.
All black belt competitors who anticipate being in nighttime finals should contact Jacob Pinto at email@example.com to select/reserve your song ASAP.
The cost to reserve a song (without any edits) for one year of use will be $25. This fee will allow you to use the music in the five events listed above for the 2022 year and guarantee the track is reserved for only you and not any other competitors.
The cost to reserve a song with edits is $85. Edits can include:
- Shortening a track.
- Extending the track to be longer.
- Adding Epidemic Sound licensed sound effects.
We are not permitted to “mix” tracks, overlay multiple tracks, or use any sound effects outside of the Epidemic Sound library. You can purchase an additional song that can be added, but it cannot be overlayed or “mixed” in any way.
Our production team will control all music, and it will not be permitted for tracks to be provided to us on-site. Regardless of whether the track is selected with or without edits, all music selections will be directly provided to us to guarantee no unauthorized modifications have been made.
You can use whatever music you would like for daytime eliminations. It is only nighttime finals where copyright-free and royalty-free music from our licensed database is required.
As this collaboration progresses, we hope to make this process easier and more inclusive to who you can work with on your music. Still, in the early stages, we require it to all go through Jacob Pinto to ensure we follow the rules necessary for this project and it’s collaborators.
We understand that last-minute information can be a bit frustrating. Still, please know a lot of time has gone into coordinating this collaboration. Using royalty-free music is an essential step for driving the sport forward and giving our professional athletes the exposure they deserve.
