“BRAVO! An Excellent Tournament!”

“I would like to compliment you on a superbly organized and run tournament. As a former practioner, who retired from the sport some 30 years ago, and as the parent of an enthusiastic ten year old, nervously attending his first tournament, I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the lack of “politics” and the ever present aire of “fellowship.”

The trophies were beautiful and awarding medals to the “runner-ups” was an excellent idea. The “look” on the children’s faces was priceless……

Your “Karate for the King Invitational Tournament” has met all the goals you mention on your website and we anxiously await your next event.”
