2024 Summer Smash

July 6

Our second development competition for the year is scheduled for Redeemer University-College near Hamilton. The competition will again focus on the Kick-Light discipline with divisions for all ages from Cadet (under 10) to Veterans (over 40). Development competitions enforce the contact level at 30% to ensure a safe and fun environment for all participants.  The Summer Smash will have three competitive rings to ensure a fast moving competition.

This will be the first competition of 2024 that will see the return of our incredibly popular Tag-Team sparring divisions!


WAKO Canada Tag-Team divisions offer a fun team competitive environment.  The divisions were incredibly popular at our 2018-2019 tournaments as the focus was on having fun and showing club pride!
