Tournaments; Our Requirements and Philosophy
AK Martial Arts & Fitness participates in domestic and international tournaments each year. Tournaments attended have been evaluated and accredited for good conduct and sportsmanship before any student is allowed to compete. On average, AK Martial Arts & Fitness students have an opportunity to voluntarily in various tournaments through out the year. If you are an AKMA student and would like to participate in a tournament that is not on the list, please submit your request to Sa Bom Nim Gilvey at the front desk. She will confer with Kwan Jang Nim Trudgill for required approvals.
All students are encouraged to participate in tournaments so that they strengthen their confidence, presentation skills, learn valuable life lessons (winning and losing) and to create new and lasting friendships with other competitors from all over the world.
AK Martial Arts & Fitness is also home to many black belt world champions and grand champions that are dedicated in supporting AK Martial Arts & Fitness and to help other students prepare and be the best they can be at a competing tournament.
AK Martial Arts & Fitness offers free tournament training for all active students ages 3 and up. Please Review below for more tournament information and training dates.
