How it started


Est. in 1984 by Jefferson Davis of St. Louis, 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    


What we offer

We have very few equals. Our organization has earned the respect from the highest of sport karate officials including  the late Mr. Ken Eubanks, Former president of the R.S.K.C.
No one person runs the M.M.A.S.C. It is an organization that is operated by the input of promoters, competitors and spectators. Parents and martial art enthusiasts should be treated to a first class event, and that is what we offer. The year-end awards banquet, which has been called the Academy Awards of Martial Arts, is a formal dinner event with demos and spectacular prize giveaways.
