National championship entries due soon!

10 April 2014

Venue for the KUGB Nationals, Birmingham's NIA The KUGB's 48th National Championships will take place on Saturday 3rd May at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena, so if you'd like to take part, get your entry in quickly!

Kumite events are open to those 6th kyu and above and kata events are open to any grade. Please see Sensei Tim Griffiths for the full category lists. Entries are £13 per person per event for individuals and £26 per team for team events. As in 2013, the club will pay for a senior elite 'A' team in both kata and kumite. All other club members are responsible for covering their own entry fees. As usual, we will be selecting kumite teams based on performance at Friday night kumite.

For those who would like to watch the event and to support their club, spectator tickets are £18 for adults and £11 for children. These can be bought on the door, or in advance if you want to avoid queuing on the day.

We'd encourage all those wishing to experience KUGB competition at the highest level to come along. We will be posting our entry forms after training at Nailsea Karate on Wednesday 23rd April. All those wishing to compete for the club must inform Sensei Griffiths of the categories they wish to enter and have paid their entry fee up front to be entered. No exceptions. If you have any questions, please speak to one of the club instructors.
