It's one thing being part of a club event, and it is another thing altogether to go as a club to an event in the wider Taekwon-Do community. There is nothing like it - the sense of community and the encouragement and camaraderie are simply magic. And we'd love for you to experience that - to get a sense of what is out there and what is possible.
We'd like to invite you to the Auckland North Regional Tournament, the biggest local regular event on the annual calendar. It's just a suburb over from the Ellerslie dojang at the AMI Netball Centre in Stonefields/St Johns. Whether you come as a participant or as a supporter is up to you - obviously we'd encourage you to enter because you will learn a lot and really develop as a martial artist by participating. But whether you come as a competitor or a supporter, you will be inspired!
You can enter any or all of the 4 individual events which are: patterns, sparring, specialty and power. We'd recommend that you enter patterns and choose at least one other event that you enjoy. If you really like flying kicks - enter specialty, if you really enjoy power enter that, if you like being tactical enter sparring.
If you do enter this tournament you will be able to receive a Warrior representative badge for your uniform if you don't have one already. You can ONLY receive these badges for representing Warrior at an external event. If you need a badge drop me an email after you've entered so we can sort one out for you.
All entries must be in by midnight this Friday so get onto it ASAP - the tournament itself is on Sunday 22 May.
We are aware that there are some students whose ITKD registrations are not yet active with ITKD - those people ought to be able to register on Tuesday night.
