A few notes on tournaments, since we are a new school and for many competitors these will be their first tourney experiences.
-Parents need to accompany their kids, or send a guardian.
-Tournaments are all day events! They almost always run late, so be prepared.
-They have vendors for food and drink there, but I also recommend bringing your own.
-There are different divisions based on weight, experience, and gender (for adults.) This means competitors will need to weigh in before their matches.
If you have any questions, ask Sensei Brennan or Leigh. We'll help you out.
