A tournament can be fun, competitive, and affirm your skills and development as a martial artist. The Samurai Sword Series 4, Calgary, was definitely fun, competitive, and affirming!! The fourth in a five part series of tournaments for our Calgary and Cochrane locations, this tournament was a special challenge as there were so many students who were brand new and had never participated in a tournament. Every one of the competitors was an example of good sportsmanship, courage, and skill development across the martial arts continuum.
* Disclaimer: I am not a martial artist. I am a parent of several, friend to even more, and have attended close to 100 tournaments over the last 15 years. This is written from my perspective and is meant to be helpful to those who have never been to a martial arts tournament or have never been the support system for a participant before.
It's tournament season! For those of you relatively new to martial arts, tournament season runs from late September through early June, usually, and a tournament can be a small club tournament where only those members of a certain club, such as Arashi-Do, are invited to participate, or a huge open tournament that is open to all clubs and several martial arts styles. I would like to offer my top 12 hints, tips, tricks, and things-you-should-know before your first tournament.
WELCOME! It's a new season and we have a lot to catch up on. First and foremost, welcome or welcome back to all of our students, family members, staff and instructors, to the new season!
Check out all the fun and trial, tribulations and fantastic training for our 27 members team in Rio de Janeiro for the inaugural CBJJD Tournament!
