It’s been a rough year for the national Karate circuit this year, with the economy the way that it is. The National tournaments have been smaller and in return the tournament promoters have had cut back on their budget. The hard core competitors, faithful to their compassion to compete continue to attend the National Karate circuit.

The AMA Dojo of Jefferson City had two compete at the Battle of Atlanta this year with a runner up for grand champion under black belt. I could not be more proud of these two. They have worked very hard to continue their journey on the national circuit. There is a twist this year though, we have an adult who has climbed the Latter to reach the “World Championships” We will soon see.

The competition was fair for the most part at the Battle of Atlanta, however  some new adjustments to the rules caused some confusion and disappointment. In these tough times it is better to keep the standard with your hard core competitors.
