Phoenix Valley of The Sun Karate Tournament

We are excited to announce our Valley of the Sun Karate Tournament!  

By popular demand, we will organize this tournament similar to our national karate tournament by pre-assigning students into divisions and groups.  Each group will have no more than ten competitors and will be assigned to a specific ring at an assigned start time.  Once the students report to their assigned ring they will compete in all the events in that particular ring until finished.

This tournament’s registration fee includes a 6 event package!

White, Yellow, & Green Belt package includes (Fastest Fist, Fastest Kick, Strongest Punch, Strongest Kick, Crazy Attack, and Flag Sparring).

Blue & Purple Belt package includes (Fastest Fist, Fastest Kick, Strongest Punch, Strongest Kick, Kata, *Flag Sparring or Sparring)

Orange Belts & Above package includes (Thunder & Lightning, Mushin, Kata, Board Breaking, Sparring, Noodle Battle)

*Note: Blue and Above students can choose between Flag Sparring or Sparring, but can not participate in both.

Spectator Limit

Currently, we will be limiting spectators to a maximum of two parents per family group.

All registration must be done online.  WE will not accept walk-ins on the day of the event.

We will have an option for “add ons” when registering so you can order the EXCLUSIVE Tournament patch and t-shirt.  You will pick these up at the event.

“Students, who attend tournaments, gain a very valuable learning and rewarding experience. Attending a Tournament gives a new insight into the skills taught at class, where students simply cannot gain at regular class attendance alone.”

“The events are fun and easy to understand. Your instructor will show you exactly what to do in class.   It’s a great experience you won’t want to miss!  All competitors will receive Olympic Style Medals for placements!  Everyone goes home a winner!”
