One of the most exciting opportunities you will have in the Martial Arts is competing in tournaments. While participation in tournament competition is never mandatory, we strongly encourage everyone to take part in it. Tournament competition is designed to be an important part of your overall training. Tournaments inspire us to push ourselves harder and do our best to compete well. This means that no matter the outcome of the competition, all participants will go home a winner! 

Tournaments offer a division for every age and every rank, from the beginner White Belt to the experienced Black Belt. Whereas at testings students are judged against a standard to determine whether they are ready for the next level of training, at tournaments, students are judged against each other in two separate competitions, forms and one-step sparring or free sparring. Talk to one of our instructors for specific competition rules or to receive extra help preparing for the upcoming tournament competition.
