Est. in 1984 by
Missouri, sport karate was rapidly becoming popular
in the U.S . Open karate tournament competition was rivaling
in the number of competitors for closed competition
tournaments. With the high demand for such competition the
need for an open karate circuit was born. Competitors
compete in designated tournaments earning points for placing
in these events. Competitors could also be awarded points
for simply participating in these tournaments. At the end of
the year, points are tallied. The top three competitors are
awarded for their achievements which now includes the TOP
TEN. Although not the first of its kind the M.M.A.S.C..
quickly became one of the most respected sport karate
circuits in the country. Fast forward to the present time
and sport karate has grown to international levels with open
tournaments as far away as Europe. The foundations set in
1984 are still here today, with double the divisions for
children thru senior, beginning belts to
black belts. They all have a place with the M.M.A.S.C
