Registration under way for Presti Kids-only Tourneyby jmaloni
Presti Karate Centers is now taking registration for its 13th annual Kids-only Karate Tournament, set for Saturday, March 23, at Niagara Catholic High School.
Called "the only kids tournament on the East Coast" by its organizers, children from Presti's new 4- and 5-year-old Presti Panda Program will show off their skills, and a demonstration from Presti's Team Fierce will lead off the event. Participants between the ages 6 and 18 will compete and all will win a trophy. "We have raised over $82,000 that has been donated to local children's programs," says Master John Presti. "This year, we choose Family & Children's Casey House, Community Mission's Youth Services, Chuck Norris' Kick Start Kids and Child Advocacy."
Presti notes a pep rally will be held at its location, 2809 Pine Ave., on Saturday, Feb. 9, between 1 and 2 p.m.
Vendors and sponsors are now being sought. For more information, call Presti at 716-285-9242.
