Ashihara Karate in South Africa plays hosts to one major tournament each year - the International Championships which has been combined with the Sabaki Challenge - see . Smaller, regional tournaments are also held throughout the year in South Africa and member countries.

The rules used in tournaments are "Full Contact" and "Semi-Contact". Semi-Contact uses the clicker system of continuous point scoring. Clicker fighting prepares the student for Full Contact sparring and this and other innovations have made the events exciting to watch.

The Sabaki Challenge is usually held in the month of August, and we would certainly enjoy having you and your team sharing this experience with us.
