OPEN TOURNAMENTS

Open Tournaments outside of Spivey Karate provide an opportunity to compete at a very high level.  Typically longer in duration than Training Tournaments, these competitive environments provide a neutral ground where martial artists from many styles compete against each other to win.  Competitors should train in advance and be prepared to endure the mental and physical stresses these tournament provide to be successful.
