So no old videos! All terms and conditions are mentioned elaborately in the regulations enclosed to this invitation. Participating in this tournament is entirely free of charge! However, a valid SNN or WNA passport is mandatory! All forms will be judged by a jury composed of six persons. Since it will take a lot of time to judge all forms, the members of the jury will be given an amount of time to judge the forms in their own time. It will definitely not be easy to judge a form through the PC (or any other device), given the fact that all the members will have entered with their most perfect form. Despite these difficulties, the members of the jury will give their very best to judge these forms. It will be about the details! The ‘wiz kid of the WNA’, Wouter Lugtigheid has created a special portal to enter the tournament and submit the videos. This portal is available in Dutch as well as English. Furthermore, a special tournament committee has set up the rules and regulations (enclosed to this invitation) in cooperation with the SJC. It is important that everybody carefully reads these regulations, because incorrect/incomplete/unclear entries will not be judged. What are the classes which can be participated in? For Kata there are the following divisions: Kyu Grades: - 1st [...]
