Dojo Shiai

In-House Tournament - August 16 - 6:00pm

A SHIAI is an in-house tournament/competition workshop. This event is perfect for those who have never attended a tournament, want to learn how a competition works or just to get some practice in.

  • Kata, Team Kata, Sparring & Weapons Divisions
  • Registration is $30 (+hst)
  • All competitors will receive a participation ribbon and the top 3 in each division will receive an awaard.
  • This event is open to all Driftwood students with the exception or our WeeKick kids.

PARENTS - We need your help!
Tournaments need lots of people to run smoothly and we don't have enough staff to do all of the jobs. We're looking for parents to help us run ring tables. No experience necessary - we'll teach you what to do. Please speak to Sensei Rice if you would like to help out!

REGISTER ONLINE with your AutoPay account.
