The Open the Brave Gate is the spiritual successor to the NWA Welterweight Title from the Toryumon Japan days. This title was conceived by K-ness & YOSSINO (Masato Yoshino). Competitors are restricted to a weight of 82kg or lower to qualify. The center plate on the belt is divided into 8 pieces. The participants in the first tournament on 3/3/2005 were each given a piece. When defeated, they gave their piece to the winner. In situations where the title becomes vacant, the pieces are removed and distributed to potential challengers. The next champion will be the one to eventually collect them.
