Tournament entrants may compete in a number of events, including open, musical and traditional forms; weapons and sparring. There are male and female divisions, as well as age groups ranging from 5 and under to 30 and over.

On-site registration begins at 9:30 that morning. All black belt divisions are scheduled to begin competition at 10am, with advanced belt beginning at 10:30 and beginner and intermediates at 12:30pm.

The top four placers in each division will be awarded a trophy. In addition, the grand-champions of the adult black belt weapons/forms, men’s fighting and women’s fighting divisions will each receive a $75 cash prize. The top contender in the youth black belt weapons/forms event will win $50.

Don’t feel like taking blows to the torso and/or face, but still want to catch the action? Completely understandable. Spectators ages 16 and up can watch for $10, while kids 15 and under need only $5 to enter. — Robert T. Balint
