February 8, 2013

Every year we are trying to make this tournament bigger, better and fair yet challenging.

The Submission Series will officially begin Sept 21 this year with part 2 being in mid oct, part 3 in early mar 2014, part 4 in early apr  and the finals at the Mind Body Soul in June of 2014.

 

In an effort to meet the growing demand of children and recreational competitors we are adding new divisions and adjusting the rules where needed.

March 2 at the Edmonton North Side Arashi Do will be tournament OPEN TO ALL AGES, EXPERIENCES AND AFFILIATIONS.

This year we are going to try to separate the divisions as follows:

We are going to use the Edm Tournament on March 2nd to see which divisions have the most interest, this will shape which divisions stay at the larger tournaments (Capital City Mar 23 and Mind Body Soul May 4).
