Summer Challenge

The FMA Summer Challenge karate tournament is right around the corner! 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!

This Summer Challenge is extra special because it’s the FMA Official Olympic Day! The Summer Challenge has been sanctioned by the USOC and we are very excited to celebrate karate’s debut at the 2020 Olympics.

Join us at 9:15 am for a group photo shoot in honor of Olympic Day!
