Welcome To The Amerikick Internationals
You are cordially invited to the AmeriKick Internationals Karate Championships on Friday and Saturday, March 24-25, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
In 2008 “The AmeriKick Internationals” and “The Tornado Internationals” merged their combined years of tournament promotions and raised the bar, yet again, to bring their competitors excellence in sport martial arts competition. This event is becoming widely known as the “competitor’s tournament”.
AmeriKick is proud to be a part of NASKA (North American Sport Karate Association) and the Open World Tour. Amerikick is also sanctioned by the WKA, the Pro-Am Sport Karate Circuit and the AKL (AmeriKick Karate League.) AmeriKick is home to the Trick Battle, Weapons Battle, Traditional Forms Challenge, and the highly competitive Black Belt Sparring Divisions. Last years Open Weight Sparring Challenge raised the bar even higher in the black belt sparring category with 30 of the best sport karate fighters in the world.
2015 and 2016’s Championship Finals was broadcast on the Comcast Sports Networks to millions of viewers highlighting the Top Sport Karate players in the world. The top rated forms and weapons competitors in the world like Cole Presley, Reid Presley, Derek Meegan and Sammie Smith were featured in the broadcast along with the top Sport Karate fighters Dean Barry, Ross Levine and Jack Felton. Who will win the coveted Crystal Cup and win thousands of dollars in prize money this year?
The event returns again to the Pennsylvania Convention Center located in the historic downtown Center City District of Philadelphia and conveniently located just steps away from some our Nation’s most historical sites. The event will be held in the 130,000 sqft Exhibit Hall A to accomodate the increase number of competitors and spectators and vendors. There are many new things happening in 2017 including a Hyper Training Camp Thursday night at the Marriott Hotel, a martial arts business boot camp Thursday afternoon and AX Games featuring Fitness Competitions.
Make lifetime memories by experiencing the Constitution Center, the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. When the day turns to night you will enjoy a vibrant night life on South Street, Pennslanding and Olde City. You can also shop at the many stores in the area, eat at a variety of authentic and eclectic restaurants and enjoy a fun filled weekend wrapped around an action packed martial arts event.
