Morrow’s 40th Semi-Annual Karate & Kung Fu Tournament Oct. 12

Mr. John Morrow is hosting his 40th semi-annual martial arts tournament on Saturday, Oct. 12, in Davenport, Iowa, at St. Ambrose University’s Lee Lohman Arena.

This is a tournament I highly recommend for martial artists in the Peoria/Quad Cities areas due to the level of competition, the fairness of the judges, and the great attitude displayed by everyone. Faith and I attended the spring version of this tournament earlier this year and we did well.

Events include Forms, Sparring, Weapons, and the unique horse-riding stance competition.

Competitors pay $35 for all events. Spectators are $5, and kids 5 and under are free.

Sparring competitors must wear dip-foam gloves and boots, a groin cup, head gear and a mouth guard.

Registration begins at 9, and the tournament begins at 10.

For more information, contact Mr. Morrow directly at 309-764-1929.
