The kids took part in a Kata tournament against another Dojo in the north of the city. It's a pretty friendly (but serious!) affair. For the uninitiated a kata tournament is non-contact, but competitors go through a series of routines against another participant. It makes it interesting as bigger/stronger competitors don't always win if their younger rival has perfected and timed their punches and kicks more appropriately.
