Konan 2015 Junior National Preparation Workout – March 14, 2015

January 3, 2015

konan-logo3The 2015 USJF/USJA Junior Nationals are in Indianapolis and there is no reason that we shouldn’t sweep the podiums this year. The goal of this workout is to get as many junior competitors together in one place as possible so they can all get mat time with other kid in their skill, weight and age range that they don’t see all the time. This should be a great opportunity to expose our new and regional competitors to some national level competitors and show them they have what it takes.

Where: Alliance AZO Martial Arts Training Center LLC- 1348 King Hwy, Kalamazoo, MI 49007

When: March 14th 2015, Noon-3pm (Weekend before the MI State Open)

Cost: There is a suggested donation of $10 per player, but bodies on the mat are more important than dollars in the box.

Experience level: If they can fall bring them with.
