The "Art of Movement"
Karate Shinboku Kai is extending an invitation to all interested Karate and Kobudo Clubs to the 9th ART OF MOVEMENT Open Kata Competition, which will be held in association with the University of London at Student Central, Upper Hall.
The program generally starts with a traditional opening speech followed by demonstrations, after which the tournament will commence. At the end, medals are awarded to the winners and there is usually an after party which offers competitors and spectators the chance to socialise in the heart of London.
In this tournament, karate-ka from any style will compete and be judged on, literally, their art of movement. Karate and Kobudo are martial arts and the katas represent an elegant demonstration of fighting skills where power, speed and coordination are combined in a graceful manner.
Clubs and Associations are encouraged to bring a referee and/or an official to the tournament.
All Individuals and teams are welcomed to give a demonstration.
