Every year we host our Club Tournament for the members of Red Tiger Karate Club to take part in. This offers our students a chance to test their skills against students of a similar age and grade from other Red Tiger dojos.
Our Tournament has been running since 2007 and over the years there have been some outstanding performances of both Kata and Kumite and it by far is our most popular event in the RTK calendar.
Certificates, Medals and Trophies
You can win gold silver and bronze medals as well as trophies to keep and show your family and friends. Everyone who takes part goes home with a large certificate to reward them for taking part, that way nobody goes home empty handed.
Relaxed atmosphere, making friends and having fun
The difference between our tournament and other external tournaments is that it is a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Students can support one another all day. Our Instructors take part in referee training and officiate all day. We make sure that everything runs smoothly and are there to look after all competitors on the day.
From Beginners to Black Belts – Just give it a go!
We have categories for everyone, even if you have only been doing karate for a few weeks, you can enter our white belts categories. We have categories from 5-6 year olds right up to Adult Veterans. Where ever you are up to, you should come and give it a go, you’ll learn nothing sat on the couch!
No need to hang around all day!
Our team is well organised and we run a tight events schedule from 10am right through till 4pm on 3 separate matted areas. There is no need to be there all day, simply turn up for your event, do your best and the medals and certificates are awarded straight after the event.
It will be a great day and look out for Information and entry forms which will become available nearer the event.
Compete against students of a similar age and grade level
Why try to keep our categories fairly small to give everyone a good chance of winning one of our medals or trophies. You will be competing against students of a similar age and grade level to keep everything as fair as possible. The events schedule is put on the news page the day before so that everyone can see who they are up against in their category.
Reasonably priced and it’s free to come and support
Our tournament is very reasonably priced. Categories and pricing information will be available soon.
Opportunity with the English Karate Federation
The very first stage is attending our Elite squad training and attending selected competitions with our team. Our team meets weekly for competitive karate training in both Kata and Kumite. This puts you on the pathway to further development and allows you to test yourself at both regional and national competitions.
There is then the opportunity to attend Regional EKF Squad training. If selected, you would have the opportunity to compete at National, European (EKF) and World (WKF) level competitions. The English Karate Federation boast a number of World Class Coaches to take your competitive karate career to the next level.
Our own Chief Instructor Paul Wolstencroft Sensei is a Northern Region Kata Coach working under National Kata Coach Ady Gray Sensei.
The Northern Region Kumite coach is Frank Pullano Sensei and the Head Coach is Junior Le Fevre Sensei.
