Littleton, CO – The Master Barb Kunkel Fight For Life Classic is coming up on August 9th, 2014. This will surely be an event to remember, as martial arts schools are coming from around the country in order to support Master Kunkel.
Master Barb Kunkel is a mother, Taekwondo Master, school owner, and USA Olympian. Her students have excelled at both Olympic Sparring and Demo Team, with the ALL Demo Team winning many state, national, and international titles. Last year she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer, and since then has been engaged in the fight of her life. 100% of the proceeds of the tournament will be used to offer financial support for this fight, and in future years other recipients will be chosen.
The nature of this tournament means that it will likely be one of the largest tournaments ever in Colorado and there should be excellent competition across all weight, age, and skill divisions.
Students are encouraged to pre-register at: http://www.a-team-rocks.com/tournaments.html. Preregistration is ESPECIALLY important for this event as it will allow the organizers to better plan for the turnout. The tournament will certainly be big, but whether that is 500 competitors or 700, no one knows.
Most schools will also be selling fundraising tshirts with the above logo. Check with your dojang today.
