Tournament Officials

We kindly ask all attending clubs to provide at least 2 officials to help out for kata/kumite judging and table officiating, if you can provide more, this would be even better of course. If there are plenty of officials between all the clubs, then we can rotate them throughout the day so they’re not overworked and to keep the judging as fair and unbiased as possible for the competitors. Officials will be provided with lunch plus free tea & coffee throughout the day for their services. There is a section on the entry form for you to write down your officials details. We thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected] or call Richard Hang Hong on 07899 827 476.
