We are thrilled to announce the Coachella Valley’s First Annual Para-Karate Tournament, scheduled for July 13th, 2024. Organized by Seiden-Juku, this groundbreaking event aims to showcase the talents and capabilities of athletes of all abilities in our community.

Founded with a mission to empower individuals with disabilities through the art of Karate-Do, Seiden-Juku offers specialized para-karate instruction tailored for children and adults with a range of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). From Down’s Syndrome to autism, epilepsy to cerebral palsy, and including individuals in wheelchairs and those who are visually impaired, Seiden-Juku welcomes everyone to participate and thrive.

The tournament promises to be a celebration of inclusivity and skill, where athletes will demonstrate their martial arts prowess and inspire our community. This event not only highlights the dedication and hard work of these athletes but also underscores the importance of embracing diversity and supporting inclusion in sports.

We invite you to join us on July 13th to witness this remarkable display of talent and unity. Let’s come together to cheer for our athletes and celebrate their achievements!
