Whether your interest in karate is simply a means of improving your physical fitness, helping yourself gain focus and concentration or working to compete at the highest levels in tournaments worldwide (currently, 6 IMA students are members of the US National Team!), most of the the information you’re going to need can be found here.
I just wanted to extend a sincere Thank You for another wonderful IMA tournament. The kids all had a wonderful time, and it was great to see all the students of the dojo enjoying the experience!
I’d also like to thank you for the experience of being able to meet and learn from so many world class referees and instructors. I feel so lucky that both my kids and I were able to have that training. In addition, the “hands on” advice and experience of the high level referees was an invaluable opportunity for me to learn some of the details of judging. Finally, watching some of the visiting elite competitors was a great motivator for all of us to see what world class sport karate-do can be.
