“It’s great to be able to provide a place for people to compete,” said Parker. 

“As far as talent goes, we’ve got multiple champions coming from all different kinds of places in the area.”

Parker adds that he would love to see all the martial arts clubs in Northern BC come together to compete, and hopes to hold tournaments like the invitational every six months.
