Good afternoon, All –
Please allow me to share a perspective on the value of doing what you love to make your life meaningful. I have participated in many activities along the way including, wrestling, boxing; author of 2 published books, being a parent, husband, business professional and martial arts black belt. I have gained a great deal from all of these pursuits.
Along with this list of entertaining and sometimes challenging activities, I have also invested my humble efforts toward being a Karate School Owner & Sport Martial Arts Tournament Promoter. With my wife and 2 sons by my side in these endeavors over the last 15 years, we have made genuine & sincere efforts to make a positive contribution to the students and competitors whom we have exchanged with over the years. It was the most exhilarating and rewarding journey of all and we are grateful for the shared experience.
After much contemplation, we have made the collective decision to host our FINAL EVENT! The Bushido Open as our classic tournament is called will be held for the last time on November 12, 2016 in Pittsburg, California. This will be our 9th event. I love how my family worked so well together to make our contribution to competitive Martial Arts. For all intents and purposes, creating and presenting this event made us even closer as a family and we sincerely hope that we did some level of good for the game.
In what is for us a positive gesture to our community, we will be donating 50% of the tournament proceeds to The Pittsburg YOUTH DEVELOPMENT CENTER (Formerly Known as the East County Boys and Girls Club). This organization is in a challenging, re-building mode and we embrace the idea of doing what we can to bring a positive spotlight to a historically great organization. Our event will also be held at their outstanding Pittsburg, CA facility.
Not only will this be our final event, but we would like to offer reduced market tournament rates for this championship in hopes that some folks who could not usually afford to participate, can share their martial skills and compete for some outstanding awards!
Thank you in advance to all of you who would like to join us. No offense to you folks who cannot be with us. We respect and appreciate the amazing dedication, talent and athletic ability that we have witnessed from our esteemed martial arts community, and we will give you our very best in this, or last event!
Traditional and Sport Martial Arts Lives on!!
Respect, honor and appreciation to you all.
