11th annual King George Karate Isshin-Ryu Open Championships

Dedicated martial art enthusiasts from Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina, Virginia and throughout the eastern seaboard gathered at King George High School on Saturday, for the 11th annual King George Karate Isshin-Ryu Open Championships.


Hanshi Karl K. Hovey and King George Parks and Recreation sponsored the tournament. It was open to all styles and systems.

With over 118 events and 200-plus men and women celebrating Kata, Kobudo (weapons), and Kumite, martial art competitors showcased their individual styles.

Thrilled with the event’s consistent attendance over the years, King George Karate Isshin-Ryu Sensei Kevin Kline said, “it’s a friendly competition where we get people from all over the east coast to compete. We have people that have traveled from as far away as Okinawa, California, and Puerto Rico. Martial arts schools come together to see how their martial arts will stand up against other schools.”

Fifteen students from the King George Karate Isshin-Ryu organization competed in the tournament.

Hovey, who teaches out of Stafford is a 9th degree black belt, while Kline who has trained under Hovey is a 5th degree black belt.

In an effort to help homeless shelters, participants collected and donated canned foods.

Over the years, the practice of martial arts has grown in popularity. In fact, four schools from King George participated in the tournament, along with schools from Caroline, Stafford, and Fredericksburg. Physical fitness, confidence, philosophy and self defense are all aspects of Karate.
