The Tournament of Thunder was a competition of pure strength and martial prowess.
The tournament was orchestrated by the Order of Thunder, the monks who served the Fortune Osano-Wo. It followed no schedule or structure. They invited great warriors to compete for the Favor of Osano-Wo. 
Competition was limited to single-elimination unarmed combat duels between competitors. Shugenja were permitted to participate, but invoking the kami was also forbidden. The use of Kiho was not restricted, giving advantage to the monk and shugenja.
