Boon, you're over complicating things. It should be kinda like Thunderdome - five aikidoka enter, one aikidoka leaves. The others leave a little later after they regain conscious. Get a steel cage too.
Trust me, rules and referees can only get in the way of a good brawl. Stupid shodo-hai.
PS If I ever get off my lazy ass, I'll be using this as inspiration for the further Adventures of Shodo thug!

you are. This idea also came up from friends who PMed me. Look out for Dojo Brawl (TM) ver 2.0: The Xtreme Challenge
One contender, 4 shihan (any style). 3 minutes time period, contender remain standing, he/she wins nice shiny medals, advertisement contract whatever, If not, he gets a choice of how he/she would like to be carried out; by stretcher, wheelchair or even wheel barrow.
