Ring 1 Events Schedule

Thank you for entering our Kata Tournament, remember our competition is for the purposes of enjoyment. Win, lose or draw, everybody will be awarded a certificate just for taking part. Best of luck to everyone who is brave enough to put themselves out there on the mat.

Parents and supporters are always welcome and it is free to spectate. All students under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by an adult. Below you will find extra information and the schedule of events for Ring 1.


Date: Saturday 27th February


The Co-operative Academy of Manchester Sports Hall

Plant Hill Road

Higher Blakeley


M9 0WQ


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 and we have arranged R.G Photography (a professional martial arts photography company) to take photos on the day. Action shots and winning moments will be available to purchase on the day or view after the event.

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.

Ring one is the first ring facing you when you enter the Sports Hall.

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 scored, then the top four will compete in a semi-final with the winning two competing again in a final. 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.
