Tournament

The University of Minnesota Shotokan Karate Club is hosting its 28th Annual Traditional Karate Tournament in March, 2014. The tournament is scheduled for Saturday, March 15, 2014. Rregistration will be from 9:00 to 10:30 A.M. with a Judging Seminar and Athlete Training from 10:30 to 12:00. The tournament will begin at noon and probalby run until about 6:00 P.M. All clubs from the midwest region are invited! We regularly see competitors from North and South Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Also we will be having a separate children's tournament. Events will include individual kata, individual kumite, and team kata, with several divisions for different levels of rank, and Men's and Women's divisions. The tournament is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the UMN Shotokan Karate Club, and all proceeds help pay for quality instruction and judging, equipment rental for the tournament and training, and other tournament trips. This event is a great opportunity to exchange ideas with fellow college karate clubs, and we look forward to seeing everyone! Finally, we meet after the tournament for dinner every year, at one of the many restaurants around the Minneapolis campus. Details will be announced during the tournament.


All kumite participants should bring gloves and a mouth-guard.


The University of Minnesota Traditional Karate Tournament is open to all karateka studying the Shotokan style of traditional Japanese karate.
