  This tournament is an unique experience for all dojos in the Okanagan and beyond.  It is an entry-level point for athletes, dojos, officials and volunteers to become involved and explore competition in a friendly & supportive environment.  For those looking for higher level competition, we have that too with Karate BC Team athletes and Team Canada athletes competing in several of the older divisions.
  Through competing at the three events, everyone is given the opportunity to try new techniques and strategies and have a full month until they can test them in a ring again. Officials have an opportunity to grow and learn from some high-calibre (National and Provincial) certified officials.

  The tournament format is still the same – focusing on development, time-on-mat, experience and enjoyment.  Each age division will be split into groups of 4 (equal ability), who will compete in a round robin format thus guaranteeing that each competitor gets 3 kata performances, and 3 kumite matches.  Each competitor will receive a medal in this series, in every tournament to promote growth and acknowledging effort.
