Following the success of its first edition, erectile order the UK’s first and only 100% charitable martial arts event is back for its second edition. MA Tournament is a professional, ask multi-style, family orientated Martial Arts where 100% of the profits are donated to charity.

This year the event will be a joint venture between PROACTION Martial Arts Team and PALCIC’s TKD club from north London who will be joining in with nearly 800 students.

• First time on-line entries have been used in a TKD competition that I am aware of

• In excess of £5,000 raised for charity!

• Charitable donations split between national charity “Lupus UK” and Local Northamptonshire children’s charity “KidsAid Northampton”
