Below you will find a general timeline of events for the 2017 Uechiryu Butokukai Intramural. As the we get closer to the event we will post an updated list of when each individual division is estimated to begin.
This years’s Intramural will be organized slightly different from past years. In the past, competitors sat together and waited for their division to be called. This year, competitors can sit with their family and friends, but will be required to listen for their division to be called over the loud speaker. We recommend all competitors arrive half-an-hour to forty-five before their division begins to allow ample time to change, warm-up, and prepare for their division to be called.
2017 Intramural Order of Events*
