There will also be open keiko on the Friday night before.
In case you are not familiar with this type of taikai, Kachinuki is a winner stays in format where after each individual fight the victorious player stays on to fight the next player in the opposing team.
In the event of a draw, both players retire, unless one or both players is taisho (3rd player), in which case that fight goes to encho to decide a victor.
