COMPETITION TRAINING

We have announced and are implementing an extensive competition training program at our club.Sessions will be run by multiple coaches and volunteers and are not classes but training/practice sessions where athletes bring their physical fitness up to competition level and participate in live sparring/drilling with coaching. The small fee for the competition team will be announced in coming weeks prior to the start of the September session and an application form and fee schedule will be available at the front desk in the next week or so. Participation on the competition team needs to be approved by an instructor first as the training intensity requires a minimum skill set.
