Annual Tournament

The Samurai Fitness Group has a Tournament every year. The last one was on Sunday 7th October 2018 with over 60 students from across the organisation taking part.

It's a really fun afternoon where all of the students across The Samurai Fitness Group are invited to come along and take part regardless of age and ability.

Students are introduced to a martial arts competition which helps to build their confidence and test their Kickboxing abilities against others from The Samurai Fitness Group. 


There are 4 categories in which students can participate: 

  1. High Kick - Highest kick wins (techniques relevant to grades apply)
  2. Power Technique - Demonstrate the power generated against a pad or break-board
  3. Sequence - 5 consecutive techniques up to their grade (on the day of the Tournament)
  4. Sparring - Point-stop or continuous sparring depending upon grade and experience. Every student sparring must have equipment approved by The Samurai Fitness Group. Little Samurai students must be Purple Tag and Young Samurai's Yellow Stripe and above to spar.


Gold, Silver & Bronze medals are awarded for each competition and every student receives a certificate for attending. 


£15 per student regardless of competitions entered

£25 for a family booking (one or more sibling)

    Our Parents Love The Samurai Fitness Group's Tournaments Because...

    I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the organisation of the Annual Tournament. With the amount of children taking part and the sessions you had to go through, it was so well organised. It was also very obvious that the children taking part took pride in their sport and enjoyed every minute of it. Matt, thank you so much for your dedication to our children.

    Just wanted to say a huge thanks for the Tournament on Saturday. Well organised, loads of fun and learning. We appreciate the effort you put in to make it such a success and great to see how you progress their skills too.
