On Feb 4th, Martial artists of all ages from around western Canada will gather in Airdrie for a kickboxing and Muay Thai tournament
Martial artists of all ages from around western Canada will converge in Airdrie on Saturday February 4 for a kickboxing and Muay Thai tournament at the Airdrie Martial Arts Centre.
Co-owner and head instructor Luis Cofre said the tournament will welcome over 100 fighters through the centre's doors. Most will be from the greater Calgary region, but he cited a few examples of athletes coming to Airdrie from as far away as Yukon and Manitoba to compete.
“It’s a really good experience for people who are looking for competition and to move up to the next level,” he said “Most people start with training and then move up to the point where they feel like they want to compete.”
Cofre said the Saturday event is a preliminary tournament, meaning for most of the athletes, it will be their first time putting the skills they've developed in training to the test.
The Airdrie Martial Arts Centre is located at 28 Gateway Drive NE.
