2020 BATTLE FOR THE TROOPS
November 22, 2020
Message from the Promoter
I want to welcome you to the 6th Annual Battle for the Troops open martial arts tournament. This year has brought forth new challenges for us all in our daily lives. This especially holds true for our sport. We are happy to announce that we have teamed up with SportMartialArts.com and Martial Arts Technologies to provide our competitors with an online event that we know you will enjoy. It is our hope that we can still provide a fun experience, albeit virtually, for all our competitors and friends.
While Covid-19 may have changed how we conduct our event, it has not changed the purpose of our event, to raise money for veteran charities. This year, like last year, we will be working with the Gary Sinese Foundation (www.garysinisefoundation.org). This foundation has helped countless military veterans and their families as they struggle through the challenges that conflicts has brought them. While there have been a multitude of free online tournaments to compete in, we will be charging $40 for all divisions (this price includes the registration fee), with 25% of all competitor fees going towards the foundation. We hope you will join us in efforts and we look forward to a great competition.
As a reminder that all that all competitors receive a certificate of award that shows their results of the event. All 1st - 3rd place winners are also eligible to receive an physical medal their participation. These medals will be shipped for free to any winner within the United States. Any winners that are outside the US may also receive a medal, but will have to pay for the shipping.
