Thank you for entering our Kumite Tournament, remember our competition is for the purposes of enjoyment. Win, lose or draw, everybody will be awarded a certificate just for taking part.
Date: Sunday 25th September 2016

We will expect to see exemplary sportsmanship and conduct both on and off the Tatami on the day. No arguing with decisions made or sulking if your bout didn’t end your way. Be humble in victory and gracious in defeat. Appeals can be made to the Head Official Paul Wolstencroft Sensei and his decision is final.
Remember you are representing our karate club at this competition and you should show respect for both other people and property at all times. Anyone found misbehaving or acting inappropriately will be immediately disqualified from the competition and have all medals cancelled.
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 Tatami 1.
