On Saturday, October 17th, 2020 Kyokushin Karate Fitness USA of Rochester, NY we are proud to announce the 30th Anniversary Kyokushin American International Karate Championships at Webster Recreation Center, located at 1350 Chiyoda Drive, Webster, NY 14580.
Open for all styles and Organizations.
The AIKC Tournament is currently the “longest running Martial Arts tournament in New York and on the East Coast.
The event is sanctioned by the International Federation of Kyokushin Karate and will feature some of the finest bare-knuckle full contact fighters from Canada, Europe, Japan, Russia, South Africa and the United States. Kyokushin karate is widely considered the “world’s strongest karate” and as such has been featured on television documentaries and many Martial Arts Publications. Full Contact Knockdown matches are conducted in the traditional Japanese bare knuckle, bare feet fighting style with no protective pads or gloves.
The action is non-stop and displays the true art of Kyokushin Karate enjoyed by fans around the world. The event is opened to all ranks and styles of karate. In addition to our featured evening event, we will once again offer traditional karate events beginning at 9:30 am including semi-contact and “clicker” (continuous point) fighting as well as weapon/ empty hand kata. Men, women, and children karateka are welcome register and participate. Registrations applications are available at our website.
Whether it’s Full Contact Fighting, Kata, Breaking or Weapons we are sure to please the whole group. So come on down and join us in cheering our local athletes.
