This picture was taken in 1996 at Sensei PeeWee Blanco's karate tournament.  It shows Tucker Axum III performing kata 1.  Although LOTUS was not originally designed for tournament competition because of its strong emphasis on self-defense, it can be modified slightly to be able to compete with other styles in tournaments.
