This will be a fantastic opportunity for participants to gain plenty of experience in competition and perform their patterns under pressure which will no doubt help prepare students for their next grading. Whilst most tournaments are run in a pyramid system, where competitors may be eliminated after only 1 round, this tournament guarantees each participant a minimum of 4 rounds as divisions will be run in a round robin style.
This tournament will also make Team Patterns accessible not just to Black Belts, but also to Colour Belts. Each team must consist of 5 people and perform one optional pattern, up to the highest pattern of the lowest ranked member of the team. There will be separate divisions for Black Belt and Colour Belts.
Location: De La Salle College, 81 Gray Ave, Papatoetoe, Auckland
