Fall Nationals in Disney World

fall nationals banner1 Fall Nationals in Disney WorldIf you missed this world-class martial arts tournament, you can still watch the ATA Invitational on ESPN3 or through ATAonDemand.com! Team Kowkabany has eighteen students from our Tampa, Florida location competing in the ATA Fall Nationals in Disney World this coming weekend!! There are two main days of events, starting with an amazing line-up of demonstrations and competitions by the most elite martial artists in the country on Friday evening! For those of you who can’t attend this event, you can still WATCH IT LIVE…AND FOR FREE! Here is the information you will need to watch this event! Friday’s events begin at 7:00 p.m. and you can watch this by going to ATAonDemand.com That will lead you to a link provided by ESPN3, which will be broadcasting this event. While it appears that most of the service providers in our area do support ESPN3 (which is an online channel available on your computer or smartphone, but not available on your television), you should check to verify that your cable/service provider does offer this service. The link above will tell you how to verify this. For those with some technical savvy, you can also hook your laptop up to your tv and watch this event on your big screen tv. The second part of this event will be on Saturday, when over 2000 martial artists will compete in traditional martial arts events, including the Songahm Forms, Free Sparring, Weapons, and Combat Weapons Sparring! This is when your fellow students from Kowkabany’s Family Martial Arts will be competing! Earlier during the week, Sr. Master David Kowkabany will become certified in the latest Bully Prevention methods, which we will be teaching later this year to our students and their parents. Here’s a  look-up at the line-up for this tournament, which is one of the top martial arts tournaments in all of North America. Remember, spectators are welcome at this event, so if you are interested in driving up on Friday or Saturday to watch the action live and in person at Disney’s Wide World of Sports, you can be onsite in less than two hours!
