This is the Time of the year on The East Coast that most Karate Tournaments are held. Karate Tournaments are important to most Martial Arts students. Some go and compete in these events to win prizes cash or trophies. My students attend , signup and compete for a very different reason. They measure and demonstrate the skills they learn and practice in everyday Karate Class. They compete against other Karate Students from other schools and styles. This is a great way to grow and measure your skills at the highest level.

At my tournament I stress participation over competition. I believe you are a "Winner" for giving your BEST EFFORT.
I have a event for new students who have never competed and are learning new karate skills. The event is called Demonstration. where all students who apply get a winners award.
