Carolina Martial Arts Open

‘Carolina Martial Arts Open’ will return on
May 16, 2015

After the incredibly successful debut of our ‘Battle of the Midlands’ in 2014 hosting almost 100 competitors and their families within our Dojo, and after much thought and support from my family and of my current Blackbelts, we have decided to resurrect the ‘Carolina Martial Arts Open’ name and bestow it upon our family friendly event in 2015 and into the future.

It was the ‘Carolina Martial Arts Open’ that won the 2008 NBL/SKI ‘Tournament of the Year’ due to the diligence and super-organization of our staff and the incredible love and loyalty of thousands of sport karate players from all over North America over a ten year period!

The 2015 Carolina Martial Arts Open will be a super-organized family event to be held at The Karate Dojo in West Columbia, SC where martial arts students of all ages and ability levels can display their martial arts skills, in a great tournament-like environment competing in Weapons, Forms, and Point Fighting. The emphasis will be on FUN for everybody!!

Every competitor will earn a Custom, Collector Medal for participating!!! Grand Champion competitors will win beautiful three-post trophies!!!

Mark your calendars for Saturday – May 16, 2015 and thank you for your friendship and support as we set to write a new chapter in the legend of the ‘Carolina Martial Arts Open’.
