This competition will include pattern and sparring for all grades, special technique for all blue belts and above from and power test for black belts. This event is for black belts of all age groups as well as colour belts of cadet (14 -17 years), senior (18 to 34 years) and veteran (35 years+) categories and is open to yellow belts and above. Those 35 years and older may choose to enter the senior or veteran category. Veterans will compete separately for pattern and sparring divisions only (please make sure to email the weights of your veterans that are sparring in case we need to split categories).

All entries should be made using the Dublin Open excel spreadsheet. Entries will be confirmed by return of email (within 24 hours). If you have not received a confirmation email, your entries have not yet been received. Completed hardcopy forms should be brought on the day of the event. Please remember that accurate information is the responsibility of the instructor.
