HiYa Competition Team is open to all students age 7 and up with the approval of their instructor and parents. (if underage). Categories of competition include hyung-sik (forms), Kumite (point -sparring and Olympic sparring), and board breaking (when offered). We encourage all students to try each event at least once during their competition season.
Children under the age of 7 can partake in HiYa Competition Team by invitation only.
The main competition focus of HiYa is within the Amateur Athletic Union, but we also enjoy competing with our martial arts neighbors and surrounding studios. HiYa Karate not only participates in local events, but regional and national tournaments as well.
Although HiYa is a new school our skills are comparable and often surpass other schools that have been open 10 and even 20 years. We continuously compete with a good showing, win and have fun.
Practices will be organized in advance based on upcoming events. There will be a competition practice fee due prior to the onset of schedule practices.
