This Championships depends upon Covid-19 restrictions being lifted for a return to play for combat sports in the UK.

If restrictions allow large scale event to commence, online registration will:
Open on the 8th October
Close 22nd October (or before if/when hit capacity limits reached)

This event is scheduled for 2 days but is subject to change and may be a 1 day event.

Provisional draws will be published 24th October to allow coaches to review them in advance, decide is suitable and fair whilst also spotting any admin errors.

PARENTS! please discuss respectfully with coaches so they can make the best call, they do know what they are doing and we will work with them for the Safest, Fairest & Challenging matches we can make, no one trains to be beaten up and like wise no one trains hard to face lesser opponents.

All association licence types are welcome, as long as they insure you to compete under the styles/rules you wish to compete under.

If required WKO Licences are available from: https://www.worldkickboxingorganisation.org/product-page/wko-competitor-licence

All who register are provisionally placed into categories within the age weight limit allowances. We do NOT merge categories. If fighters cant be directly matched we will create new divisions within 2yrs and 3k allowance. (All other competitions are 3yrs+ and up to 6k so we still do the fairest divisions)

If we cant match you within the 2yrs and 3k allowance we will refund you or allow you switch rules or move up a ages weight division at YOUR coaches consent.

All divisions are provisional until all fighters have weighed in, passed licence check and passed medical where required. These things are out of our control but will do our best to manage any changes which need to be made following the check stages.

We will always do our best to match as many as possible, but will always notify and refund those that cant be matched.

If pay through PayPal these are much quicker refund returns than card payments. This is out of our control but will en-devour to get your repayment to you as soon as possible.
