Greetings once again!

Please remember that all classes are cancelled on Sunday, February 12 due to the in-house Grappling Tournament.

Tournament information:

  1. We will take registrations up to noon on Saturday. The fee is $20 ($30 if you are doing gi and no-gi events) and is payable in cash or cheque only to the SMAA. The Saskatoon Martial Arts Association  (SMAA) is a non-profit organization and will also be having a great deal on T-Shirts and Hoodies. T-Shirts are $20 and Hoodies are $30 and again please bring cash or cheques for these.
  2. Competitors should be here at 10:00 a.m. and will be placed into their divisions. Grappling will begin shortly after the annual general meeting for the Saskatoon Martial Arts Association.
  3. ll that is needed is the uniform for the gi competition (please leave your belts at home – there will be belts provided). A mouth guard is recommended as well as groin protection for the male competitors.
  4. Spectators are welcome and can cheer on their favourites.
  5. But please be supportive of ALL Students!!! Participating in tournaments is a way to expand the student’s experience and make one more confident by accepting a challenge.   Even if the student does not win, a valuable experience is gained and character can be built by accepting that loss gracefully by acknowledging and congratulating the winner.
  6. For the adult events, competitors should be here by 11:30 

There is no admission fee to this event; however it would be absolutely wonderful if everyone could support the club by buying something from the pro-shop or by purchasing a drink or snack from upstairs.

If at all possible, please arrange to car-pool to alleviate the parking lot mayhem.

I look forward to seeing the students showcase their abilities as well as their good sportsmanship and camaraderie.
