5th Annual United States International Kyokushin Championships

Osu! 2024 has got off to a great start for the USA-IFK Kyokushin on Saturday, January 27th, with the 5th Annual United States International Kyokushin Championships! The tournament venue was the world-famous Tropicana Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

It was an awesome day of competition and camaraderie and a great turnout, with competitors coming from all over the United States and other countries. There were participants from 51 dojos, 22 organizations, 15 states plus Washington DC, and 7 countries, including Aruba, Canada, Costa Rica, Germany, Mongolia, and Poland.

On behalf of USA-IFK President Shihan Mike Monaco (8th dan) and Chairman Shihan Sean Schenker (5th dan), we would like to thank all the competitors, spectators, along with the officials, staff, and members of our USA-IFK family for their support. No event of this magnitude happens without the help of those both in front of and behind the scenes. A big OSU to all of you! We also want to once again thank our special guest Shihan Ted Oyama! OSU!
