Over four days, July 11-14, the Park City Karate competition team competed at the 2013 USA Karate Nationals. Nine members of the team, as well as coaches and family members, traveled to Greenville, S.C., for this premier competition. The Park City Karate team brought back a total of 14 medals while competing against thousands of other competitors in kata (forms), kumite (fighting) and kubuto (weapons).

All of the team members who competed at nationals were required to qualify at regional tournaments, including the one held annually in Park City and hosted by Park City Karate. The team has been in training since September, and has traveled to several tournaments, including the U.S. Open in Las Vegas.

Park City Karate is the only school in Park City that is sanctioned by the U.S. Olympic Committee, and teaches a traditional style of karate. The school offers classes for all ages, as well as the focused competition training.
