We would like to remind all students that this is your last week to return your Tournament Entry Forms to your Class Instructors. We have some excellent quality 70mm medals up for grabs and remember there is a large certificate to reward everyone brave enough to take part!
All completed entry forms must be in by Monday 20th April at the very latest and the Tournament is next Sunday 26th April at The Dome, St Joseph’s R.C. High School in Bolton. If you have lost your entry form and need another please ask your Instructor or you can download one here:
Remember we have categories from beginners to black belts and you can find out what time you will be expected to attend and who you will be up against right here on our website.
It is compulsory for all competitors taking part in the kumite are wearing mitts/gloves and shin and instep protection and have fitted gum shields. Groin Guards are compulsory for males and chest protectors are recommended for females.
Team events will take place late afternoon and are always a highlight as you can watch some outstanding displays of synchronised Kata from some of our very best students.
Team Kumite will be put together after all the entries have been processed and the teams will be posted on the website.
We have caterers attending the event providing food and drinks at reasonable prices as well as professional photography company RG Photography who will be capturing all the very action and medal-winning moments. You can purchase mounted photographs and other items at good prices and take them home with you on the day.
Friends and family are more than welcome, you can bring as many supporters as you like. The Dome is very large and there is no charge for spectators.
Thank you to all the students who have returned their entry forms so far, this is shaping up to be another brilliant event!!!!!
Don’t forget we have a couple of other competitions happening on the day including our first ever Kicking Championships and Best Kata. You can enter those on the day.
