Tournament Invite

The Black Belt panel of Slayton's School of Martial Arts would like to take this opportunity to extend our personal invitation to all martial arts schools to participate in our upcoming Winter Warriors Open Tournament in Trenton Tn. February 13, 2021.

As always the focus will be on learning and growing as a martial artist through fair and safe competition. The sharing of knowledge and the free exchange of ideas and techniques are what makes the Martial Arts special. This is a time for all Martial Arts schools to come together in fellowship. I know each style, instructors and students are very special and spectators will enjoy seeing you all displaying your skills.

I am encouraging all Instructors and Black Belts to participate because I feel it's very important for our students to see what they have to look forward to and also the great technique that comes with being a BLACK BELT.

We will have 5 divisions with entry fee at $60 for one or all events. Our spectator fee is $5, with children under 4 free.

Preregister online will lock in your $60 fee. Mail or cash at the door.

We will have the following divisions, point sparring, flag sparring (ages 10 and under), weapons, traditional forms and self-defense scenario. Rules and a division descriptions will be online when the event gets mailed out.

Look forward to seeing you! Call or text Anthony Slayton cell: 731-431-9503, email: aslayton1209 at gmail.com

Sincerely,

Anthony & Ruth Ann Slayton
