Due to the state of affairs of the National and International organizations founded by Nishiyama sensei.


We are no longer involved in these tournament competitions 


We were heavily involved in local, national and international competitions.


From our in house tournaments to the World Championships. 




 Our in house "Small, Medium & Big Pond" Tournaments
