This tournament will provide serious kata competitors with a chance
to compare their performance with others a short time before the next
Kata World Championships.
We will also continue our tradition of kata seminars in conjunction with the kata tournament,
German kata experts Wolfgang Dax-Romswinkel 7.d and Ulla Loosen 6.d have promised to participate both in the workshop the evening before, the competition itself and also the seminar on Sunday. Of course we will also arrange
the traditional dinner cruise in the archipelago, which will offer
an exellent chance to get together with old and new friends.
