2019 Salute to Service ATA Regional Tournament

Tournament Poster

Welcome to the JFK MARTIAL ARTS 2019 Salute to Service Tournament. We are honored to be your host and look forward to providing a great day of community and  competition. We take time this year to salute our first responders … police, fire fighters and EMTs.  Mr. David Pittman, a 50 year firefighter from Folsom, La is our special guest. Please take a moment to meet a real home town hero. Our competition medal design commemorates first responders as well.

As always, we are set for a tremendous day of competition. In addition to traditional  and creative/extreme events, team sparring has caught on and injected ATA tournaments with even more excitement. Get your teams training and come be a part of this growing experience.

Southeast Louisiana is an incredible place to visit. The culture is unlike any place you can visit. With New Orleans just a short drive away, southern hospitality, fantastic food and a laid back style await your visit. The staff and students at JFK MARTIAL ARTS along with all the ATA school owners and seniors here in Louisiana welcome you and look forward to your visit.
