2019 SUMMER SMASH
After a successful first year of Development Tournaments WAKO Canada is organizing the second event for 2019! The SUMMER SMASH will be held on Saturday June 8th, 2019.
We have selected the beautiful Redeemer College in Ancaster (near Hamilton) for this tournament. This location is much larger and provides lots of room for multiple rings, a large warm up area for all athletes and great stadium seating for spectators.
Our Development Tournaments are catered to newer competitors in our Kick Light discipline. The tournament will have the following three competitive divisions:
Pre-Novice – 0-3 Bouts or Tournaments
Novice – 4 to 10 Bouts or Tournaments
Open – 11 Bouts or Tournaments
The priority of this tournament is to give first time competitors opportunities to compete with other first-time competitors whenever possible.
WAKO Canada will again be hosting Point Sparring and Forms and Weapons Forms at the SUMMER SMASH as we continue to provide more opportunities for clubs to be involved in our competitions.
The SUMMER SMASH will also have the two newest Tatami Disciplines – TAG TEAM SPARRING and PAD DRILL ROUTINES – as part of this tournament. Any club wishing to enter teams into these two disciplines are encourage to do so.
That Development Series events are continuing to gain in popularity with all member clubs wishing to find a safe and fun avenue for competition for any and all participants!
Below is further information and all the registration forms for the tournament:
We look forward to seeing everyone at the SUMMER SMASH!
