The main objective of the shiai programme is to provide an opportunity
for all, both kyusha and yudansha to understand specific or combined
topics, in various formats from educational training to informal shiai
matches and the learning by doing methodology.
The Saturday session will start with the regular 30 minute club warm up,
followed by an informal style of coaching allowing for questions and the
opportunity to develop understanding. Correction during a match is
allowed accompanied with explanation.

Topics for development:
● the differences & similarities between grading & shiai
● the different categories of shiai and grading
● International rules and regulations
● Tournament set up, flow and management

● Personal fitness training and development out of the dojo
● Nutrition, stretching and physiotherapy
