Each year in May, our dojo hosts an Invitational Tournament¬† in Manahttan, offering¬†kata and semi-knockdown (with protective equipment) kumite competition for children and adults, as well as a number of Elite matches — full contact fighting with no protective equipment. The semi-knowckdown kumite competion at this event follows a “one match” format, with each competitor fighting a single fight against an opponent specially chosen to be the best possible match as far as skill level. This format makes our tournament an excellent experience for those who have not had a lot of tournament experience but would like to give it a try. If you are interested in learning more about the event, please contact us.
