WAKO Canada is excited to announce a very active year for both competitions and club development events. We have added three Development Tournaments again this year; Frosty Friends, Summer Smash and Halloween Howl. These tournaments provide opportunities for new competitors as well extra experience for our advanced competitors. We piloted two new divisions last year and will again incorporate them this year; TAG TEAM KICK LIGHT and CHOREOGRAPHED FOCUS PAD ROUTINES. These two divisions are meant to provide an exciting and fun alternative to the traditional ring and tatami sports. Both new divisions are part of our National strategy to provide programs to our club members that meet our LTAD program priorities.
For our elite level athletes there are many tournament format events throughout 2019! We have our regular National and Provincial Championships plus a number of additional tournaments with member clubs. For those with the travel bug National Teams will travel to USA for the North Americans in May, Turkey and Bosnia for the WAKO World Championships in October and November. You can check the application process for any of these events.
WAKO Canada is also sanctioning regular club hosted events throughout the year. So always check the WAKO Canada FB page and our website for updates!
