This exciting new concept will also earn competitors valuable points in the NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ELITE Conference on the road to World League Finals XIII!!

This is also a fabulous event to develop competition stamina and endurance. It’s almost an Open Mat Scrimmage fused with a Regular Season Karate Tournament!
