Obstacle Course: Students will be timed at the start of the course. The course will include tires, cones to move around, hoops to jump in, weight connected to rope, running, rolling (on mat) and more! Medals will be awarded by time.
Forms: Students will perform their belt level, previous belt level OR make up their own form for our instructors. A score of 5 to 10 will be awarded. Instructors will look for focus, technique, breathing control, loud kiap, strong punches, good stances, confidence and high kicks.
Striking: Students will have 30 seconds to strike the target with kicks. Each solid, strong kick will count as one. Medals will be awarded in order of the most kicks in the 30 seconds.
*Please note, competition can be scary and cause a lot of nerves. This is a great time to talk to your child about competition, overcoming nerves and coming out on the other side feeling a feeling one can't describe. Whether you win or lose, nothing beats the rush and feeling after competition. If you win, you're more motivated to train. If you lose, you're more motivated to train. Keep a positive dialogue leading up to the tournament and let your child know that you will be proud no matter what the result is.
