We are hosting a short “point sparring only” tournament at our new space on Saturday, July 20th from 10am-11am.
The goal is to give students from the three MDP schools (and hopefully a few kids from outside schools) an event that motivates them to continue progressing in their martial arts skills, even during the lazy days of summer. And of course, to acknowledge the awesomeness of summer, after the event, we will walk over to the park, eat popsicles (that we provide) and hang out for a half hour.
Divisions will be created the day of the event. We will do our best to sort students in groups that are of similar age, size, and skill level. We will use a double elimination format to ensure that each student gets a minimum of 2 matches. Medals will be handed out for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in all divisions.
Sliding scale admission means parents are welcome to pay what they feel they can afford: 10 or 15 dollars.
