Tournaments can be a great opportunity for students to show off what they have learned in class. It also allows them a chance to compete against other students from other schools to see how they rank.
Although tournaments can be a great opportunity they can also be scary for someone that has never competed before. Many students may get nervous performing in front of a panel of judges, are worried they might not win, or are just confused how they work.
Good News! UMA Hugo has tournament prep classes available. In the classes students can get assistance on everything from entering the ring to when to arrive for your event. Our instructors and veteran competitors are always happy to assist their classmates in preparing for tournaments.
