Our club holds two annual tournaments: the Twilight Teams Tournament, typically in mid-May, and the August Tournament.
The august tournament has been a major event in the Lion Bushido calendar since 1999. This year it will be held on Sunday, 28th August at the Knox Netball Centre in Ferntree Gully (http://www.knox.vic.gov.au/Page/Page.aspx?Page_id=593).
The categories of events are as follows: Kata, Self defence, Sword Play, Continuous sparring, Points sparring. Each category has a collection of events, where each event allows competitors to be within a given belt level and age range. There are also open events in each category that may be entered by any coloured or black belt level student within a given age range. Competitors may enter multiple events.
Placegetters are given awards in the form of trophies and medallions. Every student's place contributes towards their school's overall score, with the winning school taking home the perpetual cup. Remember, although trophies and awards are symbols of success, the spirit of healthy competition, maturity and experience gained from the tournament are considered more valuable.

The teams tournament is held annually in mid-May at the Rowville Community Centre. Teams consist of four competitors and the events are: Kata/Forms, Continuous Sparring, and Points Sparring.
Teams accumulate points by winning at their events and teams are ranked by their overall scores.
