We welcome all active karate students to participate in our award-winning Tournament Team. Our school attends 5-7 tournaments annually. Students can compete based on their age and ability level in the disciplines of kata, weapons forms, self-defense routines, point sparring, flag sparring, sword fighting, and team musical forms.
STEP #1 TO COMPETING: Be active in your regular classes and become proficient at the basic techniques within your belt rank.
