Doors open at 9am with the competition starting at 10am. Unfortunately, the sports centre will not allow us to provide food, other than for the judges and referees, so all competitors and spectators should bring a packed lunch and drink. There is an onsite coffee shop and vending machines.

Please note there will be no team kumite events due to time constraints related to the hire of the venue.

The competition is growing in popularity, so all clubs wishing to take part should ensure that their entry forms are sent in promptly, as each event is strictly limited to 32 competitors. The last date for entries to be submitted is Thursday 11th October. Late entries will be permitted but your entries will be added to the bottom of the events list or used to fill in entry gaps. Entry forms and a list of events / competition rules are attached to the email if you are on our mailing list.
