The karate tournament will be held next Saturday, April 25th. As an added incentive, if you compete in the competition, your grading fee of $20 will be waved. Additionally, if you win a match in kata or kumite (sparring), you will pass that portion of your rank exam!!
White belts will compete doing heian shodan and 3-step sparring. Green belts will compete with heian 3 and 4 and be one step sparring. Brown/black belts will compete with free sparring and heian 1-thru tekki shodan. You can do both events or just one (kata and/or kumite). The club pays the entry fee.
It is a great method of training and meeting some great new people from other area clubs. Even if you just want to come to watch or help.
