Welcome To The Amerikick Internationals 2019 In Atlantic City!
You are cordially invited to the AmeriKick Internationals Karate Championships on Friday and Saturday, May 16-18 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA. We are excited to announce our new venue to the Internationals will be the Atlantic City Convention Center and connected to the Sheraton Hotel.
Atlantic City has seen major renovations recently with new shops and restaurants. In addition the Ocean Resorts Casino and Hard Rock Casino Hotel just opened and new concerts and shows are taking place. The new Atlantic City Sports Commission has increased their reach and scope bringing in new sporting events like gymnastics, boxing, dance, UFC and more. May temperatures range from the 70’s and up which makes one of the most fun and exciting things to do is the beach, and for the adults, the beach bars!
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), WAKO (World Association of Kickboxing Organization) and the Open World Tour. Amerikick is also sanctioned by the Pro-Am Sport Karate Circuit and the AKL (AmeriKick Karate League.) AmeriKick is home to the Tricks Battle, Weapons Battle, Traditional Forms Challenge, and the highly competitive Open Weight 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 Internationals will once again host several events over the tournament weekend. These are great seminars for school owners presented by some of the top school owners and mangers. The 3rd annual Kenpo Legacy Camp will return again Sunday morning with world class instructors and Grandmasters.
