Welcome

Welcome To The Amerikick Internationals 

You are cordially invited to the AmeriKick Internationals Karate Championships on Friday and Saturday, April 1-2, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

In 2008 “The AmeriKick Internationals” and “The Tornado Internationals” merged their combined years of tournament promotions and raised the bar, yet again, to bring their competitors excellence in sport martial arts competition. This event is becoming widely known as the “competitor’s tournament”.

AmeriKick is proud to be a part of NASKA (North American Sport Karate Association) and the Open World Tour.  Amerikick is also sanctioned by the Pro-Am Sport Karate Circuit and the AKL (AmeriKick Karate League.) AmeriKick is home to the Trick Battle, Weapons Battle, Traditional Forms Challenge, and the highly competitive Black Belt Sparring Divisions. Last years Open Weight Sparring Challenge raised the bar even higher in the black belt sparring category.

2015’s Championship Finals was broadcast on the Comcast Sports Networks highlighting the Top Sport Karate players in the world.  The top rated forms and weapons competitors in the world like Reid Presley, Jacob Pinto, Michael Guthrie and Becca Ross were featured in the broadcast along with the top Sport Karate fighters Ross Levine and Raymond Daniels.  The 2016 Championship Finals will again air on Comcast Sports Networks.  Who will win the coveted Crystal Cup and win thousands of dollars in prize money?

The event returns again to the Pennsylvania Convention Center located in the historic downtown Center City District of Philadelphia and conveniently located just steps away from some our Nation’s most historical sites. The event will be held in the 100,000 sqft Exhibit Hall Call to accomadate the increase number of competitors and spectators and vendors.  

Make lifetime memories by experiencing Constitution Center, the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. When the day turns to night enjoy a vibrant night life on South Street, Pennslanding and Olde City. Shop at the many shops in the area, eat at a variety of authentic and eclectic restaurants and enjoy a fun filled weekend wrapped around an action packed martial arts event.

Thank you,
Mark Russo, Bob Leiker and the Amerikick Team
