The Wild Wild West Karate Tournament is in just a few weeks! If you haven’t signed up, now is a good time to do it. Click on Wild Wild West Karate on the left side bar and follow the directions to either download the tournament flier or to register online.
Also, I still need volunteers. Remember the more volunteers we have the less time we all have to work. You will also get a volunteer T-shirt, free admission, and an additional admission into the tournament.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
We had a great time at the Big “D” Championship this past weekend. Check out the results here. I was able to get a few pictures and they are here if you want to check them out. Remember! I can’t get everyone at every tournament. If you want to see more pictures than what I have, please get them to me so I can get them added!
It’s time to start gearing up for our tournament, the Wild Wild West Texas Karate Championships, on April 27 & 28. I know everyone is working hard, practicing and getting ready. If you haven’t already (and a lot of you have not) get your registration in as soon as possible. I need to get those in so I can start focusing on other things for the tournament. And remember, the earlier you get it in, the better seed you get! If you have any questions about registration, please let us know.
I still need more volunteers to sign up. Again, the more volunteers we have the less amount of time everyone has to work. AND you get an extra spectator pass for anyone you choose.
And don’t forget the sparring seminar on April 13 & 14. Get signed up for that ASAP too!
