All of our events are based on the national tournament structure set forth by the US and World Breaking Association, USA Taekwondo and the United States Olympic Committee. We believe that USA Taekwondo provides the premiere competitive avenue in world for full contact, Olympic style sparring and Sport Poomsae (or "forms"). In regards to breaking events, the US & World Breaking Association provides a variety of world class regional and national events culminating with the US Open each year. They provide a consistent tournament structure that uses a point system to rank athletes in regional and world standings. This point system allows breakers to be seeded in competitive events, creating a standardized scoring system that makes this the most official competitive breaking association in the world.
Other events that we offer are Creative Weapons,Creative Forms, Power Breaking for all ages & Sumo Mat Sparring (new event for 7 & Under).
