Phoenix Valley of The Sun Karate Tournament

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

This tournament will run differently than our past tournaments to comply with COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines.  We will organize the tournament similar to our national karate tournament by pre-assigning students into divisions and brackets.  Each bracket will have no more than 10 students 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 and Above package includes (Fastest Fist, Fastest Kick, Strongest Punch, Strongest Kick, Kata, Flag Sparring or Sparring)

*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 will be ONLINE and there will be a cutoff date of Saturday, May 15th at midnight.  WE will not accept walk-ins on the day of the event. The tournament schedule and times will be posted on Wednesday, May 19th. 

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.  To register:  Login to your parent account, then click on Register for Event, at the bottom of the page.

“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 medals or trophies for placements!  Everyone goes home a winner!”
