The Maritime IKD hosted the 1st Virtual Kata Tournament over the past several weeks. Competitors recorded katas in their dojos or homes and sent them to the Maritime IKD. Officials worked hard to get all of the performances judged within a week once the deadline was reached.
The tournament results and a gallery of the competitor videos are available for all to see on the Events page.
