DENHAM SPRINGS (FOX44) - Saturday folks in Denham Springs "kick" started their weekend with a worldwide Karate tournament.
It was an ATA sanctioned event that had all types of people competing in different forms.
They showed their skills in kata, weapon demonstrations, and sparring combat.
The great thing about this tournament is that anyone of any age could participate, and establish life long friendships.
"What i tell a lot of my students that whoever they meet now, they'll probably be sparring with them for the rest of their lives, if they stay in it." said Master Dwayne Dendy
