April 22, 2017 - World Yoshukai Closed Tournament

We are excited to announce this year's Traditional Tournament will take place in Atlanta. This is a closed tournament, which means only members of WYKKO can participate. Competition categories include Kata (Forms), Self-Defense (minimum of 5 attacks), Weapons, Sparring (Kumite),  and Semi-Knockdown

Location for the Tournament:
Hembree Park Recreation Center

Atlanta has suffered a major Interstate outage which will last for months.  Interstate 85 (just North of the downtown connector and south of GA 400) is out of commission.   For our friends traveling from the South, you will need to either take "I-285 around Atlanta to GA 400 North" or take "I-75 North to I-285 East then to GA 400 North" (Google Maps).  With a little planning and some good luck with accidents, your commute should not be drastically impacted.

Traffic Suggestions:
- Avoid Atlanta during Rush Hour on Friday (3:30 PM to 7:30 PM)
- Listen to local radio stations for traffic reports (WSB 95.5 FM and News Radio 106.7)
- Use an up-to-date GPS or Smart Phone applications like Google Maps, Waze, INRIX, etc.
