Are you ready for the next Nishimura Cup?

Shihan Dennis Q. Aquino and Sensei Seiji Nishimura

The Nishumura cup is an International event that is sponsored by PKL and Sensei Seiji Nishimura. Beginning in 2014, the Nishimura Karatedo & Kabudo cup has been a huge success in terms of both quality and turnout. Last year’s 4th Nishimura cup (2017) brought in a respectable number of entries, and there where no reported injuries.

This year, the 5th Nishimura Karatedo & Kabudo cup will be held in Bacoor Cavite. We are excited because this will be a bigger and better tournament that the last year. This is also our 5th annual gathering, and we will be moving the date up a month. This means that our tournament will be held on March 2nd to the 4th, 2018.

The tournament schedule is as follows:

  • March 2, Arrival and Registration
  • March 3, Kumite Training Camp, Kata Seminar, and Referee Workshop.
  • March 4, International Tournament and Awarding

All draws will be randomly generated and printed prior to the tournament’s start date, so everyone will need to make sure to submit their entries before the February 23, 2018 deadline. You can get a copy of the entry form on the event post.

Make sure to check out the tournament’s event post over in our events section to find out more!
