If you are looking to take your martial arts skills into the ring, we have the opportunities you want. The Amerikick Martial Arts school has competition teams that will enable you to compete against others, as well as against some of the world’s best.
Our instructors are all black belts in their particular specialty. They have also competed in some of the most well-known competition circles that there are in the world – and some of them have won!
Every one of our instructors regularly competes in the national circuits, such as in the North American Sport Karate Association (NASCA). One of our instructors has won the world title for fighting, another one has won the world title in the World Combat Association, and more! One of them just took first place in the Pan Am Karate Associate competition.
Our instructors know from experience how to win in the various circuits. They have repeatedly shown that they know how and they want to pass that training and knowledge to you. Their experience is what will give you an edge when you train on our competition teams. They know what it takes to be winners.
What They Look for
In every student at Amerikick, our instructors look to teach much more than just martial arts – although that is the tool used. They also look to give you several highly valuable qualities that will enable you to be a success in all you do.
As you continue to train, we aim to impart to each student qualities that are valuable in whatever avenue of life you want to pursue. These qualities include: self-discipline, self-respect, endurance, self-control, health and fitness, and the ability to focus. When you develop these qualities and refine them and can use them in everyday life, we know we have completed our best job.
What It Takes to Compete
Before you can compete on our teams, you will need to have reached a certain level of training beforehand. The amount of time will depend on which martial art you have selected. The instructor of your classes can provide more information. Without this previous training, it could be potentially hazardous to your well-being.
In order to become highly proficient in the ring, you will need to demonstrate that you know certain moves well, and have developed your ability to react. Professionalism is needed in the ring, and having that training will encourage you to continue.
Requirements for Competition Teams
We hold competition meets often in our dojo, and other ones are held locally. Students must get permission from their instructor before they are allowed to compete. They must also have a good attendance record, demonstrate a willingness to work hard, be teachable, and have good attitudes.
If you are looking to join one of our competition teams at Amerikick Martial Arts, we invite you to talk to one of our instructors for more details. We provide many opportunities for meets, and participate regularly in the national circuits, and also in the world circuits. Our instructors can take you where you want to go in competition!
