All De Silva Taekwon-Do students will be pre-registered and have their height & weight checked in class. You do not have to register on the day of the Tournament itself.
All competitors will be provided with a competition wristband in this week's session. Please keep this wristband safe as you will need to wear it at The Warrior Open.
Spectators will also need a wristband so if they wish they can buy this in advance which means on Saturday morning their queuing time will be limited because there will be a separate entrance for competitors whose details have been checked already and spectators who have already booked their passes.
Equipment & Clothing
As per our Club Rules. De Silva Taekwon-Do students will only be allowed to compete in True Warrior, approved Doboks (uniforms) and sparring equipment, as well as a Top Ten Head Guard.
De Silva competitors who have a tracksuit must wear the academy's tracksuit (top & bottoms) upon arrival, and have their White De Silva Taekwon-Do Club Dobok underneath.
This is a separate building, which is accessed via the car park, not the main Leisure Centre.
There will be a refreshments stall at the venue where you can buy sandwiches, snacks and drinks.
There is plenty of space in the car park, but with so many attendees, please make sure you allow enough time so you are not in a rush.
The first 3 hours of parking is free, but you will still need to get a ticket from the machine. Should you be staying longer you can top-up via the PayByPhone App.
