Stars and Stripes on April 23rd

The annual Stars and Stripes karate tournament will be held on Saturday April 23rd at the Coronado High School Gym. PMA students gather and in a unique format, the c62f6-1students are drafted onto teams that compete against each other over several rounds. This gives everyone a lot more things to do such as several katas, several kumite matches and also partner pairs. “Players” get points for their team when they win their various matches. Students are generally matched by age and belt rank to make it all fair. MVP players are also picked by a panel so that there are awards for best kata and best kumite in the various age divisions.

The PMA may be the only dojo that does this type of unique event in the whole country. It allows all students a chance to be on a winning team.
