Welcome to the AmeriKick International Karate Championships, being held August 17-19, 2023  in Atlantic City, New Jersey USA.  We are super excited to see everyone back live and in person as competition begins again with the NASKA World Tour and the Amerikick AKL Tournament League and the NASKA Mid Atlantic Regional Tour.  

A little history about our event … In 2008 the AmeriKick Internationals, Atlantic City and the Tornado Internationals, Kansas City, Missouri, 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”. 

We are celebrating 42 years of greatness and you are part of it!  Over the decades we have had the great opportunity to host the world best martial arts athletes .

AmeriKick is home of the highly competitive Team Fight and of course our main event, the Open Weight Sparring Competition.  Ages 3 to 83 will be on-hand competing!
