The #1 Rated Martial Arts Tournament in the Country!
With the most diverse divisions of competition, there's a division for every level, style, age, and choice of Martial Artist there is. With over 100 divisions to choose from it can become difficult and confusing. That's why we recommend that you use our State-of-the-Art On-line Registration System. You'll find that it's one of the easiest systems to use.
More Prize Money and Grand Champions than any Other Tournament
4 Grand Champions in each of the 12 Primary Disciplines, Tiger Claw Elite Champions, NBL National Grand Champions, and or course our world famous International Grand Champion of Champions. This is where the rubber meets the road - as they say. When all of the Discipline Grand Champions have been reached... you then compete against the other Discipline Grand Champions for the tile of INTERNATIONAL GRAND CHAMPION!

Participate in the SMAA Martial Fitness Program
This is a FREE event that's open to the public on both Saturday and Sunday. Our Host this year is Lee "Hawk" of the Original American Gladiators. Do you have what it takes to take on the best in your age category in PUSH-UPS, PULL-UPS, SIT-UPS, JUMP ROPE, and the 25 YARD DASH? All you need do is check in at the Sponsor's Booth and receive your MARTIAL FITTNESS Challenge Card. Go to each of the stations and have it signed off. Once you have tested your fitness skills, all you need do is return the signed Fitness Challenge Card and you'll receive your Martial Fitness Certificate with the State of California Seal from the Governor’s Council on Fitness.
