Note that there will be a $5 spectator fee for anyone 12 and older.
In addition the usual contact divisions (Adult, Cadets, and Junior) we also have a new division - Padded Contact, and this will be for those of you who are under 11, or would just like to try full-contact with a bit more protection.
Competitors will be matched according to similarities based on a combination of size, weight, grade, and experience. Chest padding and headguards will be provided if you don't have your own.
Click on the date if you're you ready for this? Are you ? If you want to grade for 4th kyu and up, check with your instructor NOW to see whether you're eligible, and if so, start working on your techniques and stamina now. Here's a tip - make sure your zenkutsu dachi is up to par.
See you at the tournament!
