There is plenty of free parking at the venue. Tea, coffee, sandwiches, snacks and cakes will be available to purchase on the day at reasonable prices.

All students need to turn up at least 20 minutes before the start of your event to register with the Ring Runner. It is advisable that you warm up and practise before competing as there will not be a chance to do it once your event begins. Do not forget to bring your license with you.

Please make sure you check all three rings for your name. If you cannot see your name or you think you may have been placed in the wrong category, please contact your own Instructor and let them know. Alternatively, you can send an email to: and I will resolve the situation for you.

Events will run to a tight schedule so please make sure you are where you are supposed to be at the right time. All Katas will be judged using the Red and Blue Flag system, then the top four will compete in a semi-final and the scoring will go to points. Medals, certificates and trophies will be awarded immediately after the event.

Good luck to everyone and we look forward to hosting another enjoyable and successful day.
