Adult Tournaments and Competitions

Our adult students have the option to compete in local and regional competitive events, including Kempo tournaments, hybrid-fighting events, and many more. Our fighters have competed successfully in hybrid-fighting events (a form of mixed-martial art competition developed for amatuer fighters). Participation is not required, but many students find competition to be both personally rewarding and an affirmation of the skills that they've spent so much time learning.
