Upcoming: Morrow’s 36th Semi-annual Karate & Kung Fu Tournament & Black Belt Championships

We have visited Mr. Morrow’s tournament before, and he’s sent me info for his latest tournament on Saturday, May 14, 2011 – the 36th Semi-annual Karate & Kung Fu Tournament and Black Belt Championships.

Mr. Morrow will host three events – forms, sparring and weapons. He will also include a 40-years-and-older black belt division. A black belt Grand Championship match will take place with a four-foot trophy on the line.

The cost is $30 for all events. The spectator’s fee is $4.

Traditionally, our crew has always done well at his tournament in the several times we’ve competed there. Mr. Morrow and his students are always friendly and we’ve found it to be a great tournament for our students to learn from others.

For sparring, Mr. Morrow requires “dip foam boots, dip foam gloves, groin cup and mouth guard.”

If you would like a complete division breakdown, please leave a comment.
