組手 Announcement: Kumite Classic Expo is on a temporary hold.

For nearly 20 years, the Kumite Classic has served as the regions largest sports and fitness expo. The show promoter, Bill Viola Jr., has made the difficult decision to step back from the business and spend more time with his daughter (Gabby) who was diagnosed with bowel disease at 7 years old.  He has vowed to bring back the event once she is in full remission and can maintain the chronic illness.  Currently she receives infusions at UPMC Children’s Hospital.  His current focus is research and fundraising to raise awareness for all inflammatory digestive diseases and ulceration colitis. Thank you for your understanding, and stay tuned.  We will be back!  As we continue to iron out our new date and vision, please be patient. As always, thanks for your support!!!
