    We have roughly 3 months until this tournament, which will fly by if we aren't careful.

    I am planning on competing in at least the kumite event, possibly kata. I will be posting more details about the age/grade divisions soon. But do let me know if you are even slightly interested and we will start preparing you for tournament!

    all the above points, so everyone may experience a safe and enjoyable day.
