Tournament Team Year 2

Club Members,

Last year the Bushido Karate Association launched it’s own tournament team!  Our team members received specialized training at exclusive training sessions throughout the year, and every member saw successes at the events they attended.

We’re now ready to select our Year 2 team!  The selection process is available for members ranked Green and up, and will be hosted on September 16th at the Grandview Dojo.

To register to participate in the tryouts process, please take a moment to fill out the registration form online.
