Tournament Background:
Competition starts at 10:00am: Purpose of this tournament is to give the students at the most beginning level students with only as much as a week of karate training with special divisions created by Sensei Gene Tibon an opportunity to participate in divisions designed for agility, like the Obstacle Course fastest time wins, Paddle Kumite for hand eye and eye foot reaction development first to 3 points, and Monkey Tail which emphasizes on strategy and angles for the youngest competitors last 3 standing wins, who have not yet been introduced to contact kumite with an opportunity to develop their competition skill in Karate.

The beginning students will have a chance to develop their first level of competition in a professional competition setting without having to travel across the state or country to find any divisions of this type, because there are none like our specialized Tibon’s Goju Ryu IN HOUSE Tournament.

Many of our students have developed as National, International, Pan-American, World Champions, and an Olympic hopeful. This competition allows the students to compete in a comfortable atmosphere and have a great learning experience. Confident and knowledgeable referees will judge the competition.

Register ONLINE no later than June 21st, 8pm, and deadline for at dojo register papers is June 20th.
