Dear Shihan/Sensei/Senpai,

This tournament will be run on the semi-contact clicker system of karate and there will be several kata and kumite divisions for male and female competitors. The divisions will be as per the A.K.I. weight/age format. For senior contestants there will be semi- and full contact matches. There will also be matches for Under 18’s in full contact.
