See you there

The number are up this year. I have been told that there will be 54 competitors doing a total of 73 Kata. So that will be almost twice as many Kata as last year.

Which Kata will you be doing.

See you there.

You will have to wait and see :ph34r:
So that's about 27 pairs doing 2-3 kata each. Of course there are the guys like Heiko and Jeff who basically do them all. I guess you could look at it as 6 kata with around 4 pairs per kata. Which if they split into the 3 divisions would be a little more than 1 pair per kata. Though there are usually a whole bunch of people doing nage no kata, and very few doing itsutsu no kata.
How's that for over-analysis. I imagine they will combine divisions for a few kata as usual. It always seems to me that you only really need 2 divisions, novice and experienced.

Still kind of sad that participation is so low in what is really the #1 Kata competition in the US.

Especially since the competition director is presiding over this for the first time as a Judan. It is not often any Judoka doing anything in Judo can perform before any of the living Judan who want to watch what it is that the Judoka are doing.
