Lear More about the Events
High Kick Competition 

The high kick is a great deal of fun and the rules are very simple, each participant takes turns of kicking a pad held at varying heights until they miss two times at that height. (Think High Jump) 

To make it fair we will take each participants height and the pad will move up based on a % of the students height.

(so %5 at a time)

Point Grappling / Sumo Wrestling

Sumo Wrestling is a fun fast paced event, competitors simply push and pull each other and try to get their opponent to step out of the ring or tip them off balance so they fall to the ground. Once on the ground they have 10 to 15 seconds to get to a controlling position. 

Students will need a Gi top (We will supply if they don't have one) and they must maintain contact with the gi, so no pushing and shoving unless you are holding your opponent. 

Clash (Continuous)  Sparring

Clash Sparring is continuous Karate style sparring, students will try to score points by delivering clean punches and kicks to the body (lite touch) and head area (No head contact for Jnr Competitors, very lite contact for older competitors)

The main difference is that competitors continue to trade scoring techniques and accumulate several points at a time.
