AKF To Host First-Ever Grappling and Throwing Tournament
11 Kyuki-Do Academies to Participate in Double Elimination Tournament
The double-elimination tournament will have roughly 85 participants from 11 different schools, including 12 from Lexington, Kentucky, 23 from Edgerton, and 18 from Janesville, Wisconsin. The tournament also include martial artists of all ranks, ranging from 6 to 53 years of age.
While grappling has been included in previous AKF tournaments, this event its the first in the mixed martial art federation's 37 years of existence to feature grappling and throwing in a stand alone tournament. It's also the first to use AKF medals rather than trophies.
Tournament action starts at 10 a.m.
