First Martial Arts Championship In Triad

CLEMMONS, N.C. — Bring on the competition! For the first time ever, there will be a karate tournament in Clemmons and you can sign up to compete.

Karate International of Advance and AMAA Sports are hosting the 2017 Triad Open Martial Arts Championships & Series in Clemmons on Saturday, April 1.

GREENSBORO, NC — Triad teenagers don’t have to miss one of the most memorable nights of high school, just because they can’t afford something special to wear.
