To promote good sportsmanship, tournament spirit, and good preparation, we are CALLING OUR 12 and UNDER CHILDREN STUDENTS to compete here at the karate school!

This also doubles as a wonderful opportunity for our BLACK BELTS and ALL ADULT STUDENTS to practice and enhance their JUDGING and SCORE KEEPING SKILLS for Nationals coming up on April 27th.

Prepare yourselves for a fun night of wholesome competition, parents we ask you to bring your kids for the evening with patience and understanding of our "judging committee" here at the dojang. Everyone at this event is learning and this is a fantastic way to prep for each of us!

ONE winner for FORMS! ONE winner for SPARRING!

That's it! Just two trophies. No other placements will be given. Again this is simply an in-house challenge for Forms and Sparring, and not a full event.

FORMS: Any child 12 years old or under. ANY rank. ANY form. Boys/Girls combined.

SPARRING: 8-12 years old ONLY. ANY rank. Boy/Girls combined.


$5 donations will be accepted for each participant, money will be placed into fundraising to support students attending World Championships 2020!

PARENTS OF STUDENTS: Children students who ARE testing SHOULD SIT UPON ARRIVAL!!! This way they are fully energized for their test!
Children who are only here for watching the test must stay off the mats and remain silent during testing as to avoid possible distraction to testing groups.

ALL SPECTATORS MUST turn off ALL cell phone or device sounds/noise.

PARKING: Please leave the top space open, indicated with the cone, for the visiting judge.

As we had a guest instructor visit at our Gup Testing on Friday, TONIGHT Master Lindsay will be traveling to one of our other C. S. Kim Karate locations to be THEIR GUEST JUDGE! This is always very exciting to have our instructor be honored as a visitor and judge for International Tang Soo Do Federation sanctioned events.

This means that as wonderful as it was to have International Tang Soo Do Federation Technical Advisory Committee Member, Master Venturino on Friday, he had to leave HIS school and his students to be here for US! We are always grateful to have these wonderful people come to officiate our exams and give their experience and knowledge to our students. As we respect him for his service to us, please respect Master Lindsays absence this evening for classes.


No 5:30 Class, but Children Students may attend our 6:45pm Class with Certified Instructor Mr. Tuan Tran!

6:45-7:45pm ALL MEMBERS MAY ATTEND (Instructor Kyo Sa Nim Tran)

8:00-9:00pm Adult/Teen Members only (Instructor Kyo Sa Nim Markle)

In the words of Master Leach, “Day before Thanksgiving you stuff the bird, day of the bird stuffs you, day after...get to karate and get the stuffin’s worked out of you!”

Happy Thanksgiving!

Get to class!
