Important resources:

It is important for our students to test their abilities in tournament format.  This is important for their self growth as well as a requirement as the students continue their journey and strive to obtain higher belts.

Tournament information and dates are posted on the official Canadian Website:
We suggest you refer to this website on a regular basis to keep in the know of where and when tournament opportunities will happen.

There is also a “member” section in this website which contains very valuable resources for your student:  Video support in self defence techniques taught in class; Video support for required Kata’s for grading as well as other information helpful for a student.

To access the site all you need is your (or your students’) IKO membership number to sign in and create a login.  We strongly urge ALL students to visit this site and area of the site on a regular basis.
