Spring Challenge

The 2017 Spring Challenge was a great success, with many students from all across Chicagoland coming to compete.


Things are looking even better for 2018! There will be divisions for Little Dragons (ages 5-6) all the way up through adults. FMA and non-FMA athletes are encouraged to participate. If you are new to competing, this is your chance to jump into karate competition and learn what it’s all about!
