Sunday, 21st May 2017

Sydney Olympic Park – Hall of Legends

Entry Form – Tassei Cup 2017

Dear Students and/or Parents,

The Australian Institute of Karate, our Dojo is hosting the Tassei Cup 2017 Tournament (Sunday 21st May) at Sydney Olympic Park, Hall of Legends.

Please lock this date into your diary, as it is important that ALL students do their utmost to attend and participate. Tournament participation counts towards higher grading levels and is registered on your card. Parent volunteers are also required for different divisions if you would like to help.

Little Dragons are usually over by 11am but encouraged, if available, to watch and learn from the older children. Kata divisions are usually over by about lunch time. If your divisions are completed you are free to go. However, many students chose to stick around, support their dojo-mates and lend a hand.

There are divisions for beginners to expert from Little Dragons to our over 50 competitors. Without fail everyone that steps up, challenges themselves and gets involved walks away having enjoyed themselves and taking something positive away with them.
