COMPETE NATIONALS: Feb 24th, 25th & 26th in Ontario, CA
Join us in supporting our XMA Members and World Champion Instructors at the Compete Nationals!!! This event is the second international world tournament of the year on the most prestigious circuit in the world, the NASKA (North American Sport Karate Association).
Come to compete, cheer on your fellow classmates, and watch the best in the world go head-to-head our with our very own XMA World Champs Caitlin Dechelle and Marc Canonizado!!!
RECOMMENDATIONS: Whether you are competing or going to spectate, you don’t want to miss the night time finals Saturday where all the best of the best pass through elimination rounds, a semi-final then the final few compete for an overall Grand Champion. However, the best day of competition to catch is Friday afternoon/evening. In the finals you only get to see the competitors that made it through to the end, however often times the best competitors get knocked out and don’t make it through. On Friday, you’ll get to see all of the best Black Belt competitors in the world go head to head in every division. It’s totally intense!
We also recommend getting a hotel room and staying at least Friday night as the competition often runs late — until 10pm, so you can relax, not worry about the drive back and soak up the culture. Come hang out with us and meet some of the best in the world. It’s like being back stage at the X-Games and you are the VIP!!!
