The biannual Oslo Championships are tournaments specifically tailored for kyu-kendokas. Its purpose is to give newcomers to Kendo a proper introduction to tournaments (shiai), teaching them all the etiquette and rules and give them the opportunity to meet other kendo practitioners of similar level. The winner of the tournament (shiai) is awarded with a trophy, which will be in his/her possession until the next tournament.
Contrary to the previous tournament, this time we offer grading for all kyu-levels as well as a tournament designed for those who are too young or to inexperienced to safely enter a shiai.
Deadline for registration:
Tuesday 27th of November 12:00.
Price: 114 kr
The price is the same regardless of whether you're just grading, just joining the tournament, or doing both.
This year we are offering two tournament formats, you may join only one of them. If you are unsure of which of these you should enter, consult your sensei.
The participants will be asked to perform a series of attacks or techniques. The judges will designate a victor according to who executed the attacks the best. Factors which the judges will consider: strong spirit, powerful execution (se-me) and the general quality of the attack.
Standard kendo competition format. Participants will fight their way out of the pools in 3-minute matches, before the best enter the finals.
