Pre-registration is not required. You can sign up (and sign a liability release) at the door. Download and print a liability release for parents to sign if they are not able to attend with their teen.
A donation of $20 to support the event is appreciated. A donation drop-box will be at the registration table.
What to wear
Wear your martial arts uniform, or whatever you normally train in. There are dressing rooms available with showers for men and women. We will be training on mats in bare feet, in keeping with facility rules.
What to bring
It is recommended you bring a water bottle and food to snack on during the breaks.
Please don’t bring valuables, as there will be a lot of people present. Lockers are available. Bring a padlock if you want to secure your belongings.
There is plenty of room for parents and spectators to sit and talk, or observe the training. Participants are also welcome to step off the mats and take breaks as needed. Beyond the training, this event is about building community. Participants are expected to be respectful of the teachers and students who are training, but a good amount of talking and laughter is required throughout the day!
Come when you can, leave when you must, train as your body allows, and take this opportunity to practice with, and get to know, as many people as possible from all different styles of martial arts.
