With eyes wide open, and hearts full of love for the future – the time is NOW!!

TCT (The Competitor’s Tour) was born of a vision between Mr. Brian Pena (SC) and Mr. Corky Sikes (GA) originally in 2008 to grow Sport Martial Arts into the future – locally, regionally, and nationally by building relationships, incorporating technology, and raising the bar for what is possible. Respecting the past and breaking barriers for generations to come is truly a mantra that will continue to drive the TCT for years to come.

Both Mr. Pena and Mr. Sikes have been deeply involved within Sport Martial Arts for over 30 years and in that time have built a solid brotherhood centered around the desire to continuously grow (Kaizen), both in Business and in Life. While they both have been loyal to the NBL for 25+ years they have also traveled, competed, and promoted for other regional, national, and international organizations.

TCT has contracted with UVENTEX to maintain registration, coordination, and scorekeeping for not only each TCT sanctioned tournament, but for the TCT Championships and Banquet. Each of our promoters and staff continue to undergo rigorous hands-on training with UVENTEX and are ready to serve and ELEVATE. We feel with every fiber within us that UVENTEX is the future of tournament management, and we are excited to be affiliated with Moshe Gershberg and all the UVENTEX team.

TCT has started the 2023 competition season with Level 1 (“AAAAA”, “AAAA”, and “AAA”) and Level 2 (“AA” and “A”) tournaments that we feel have the infrastructure, passion, and knowledge to succeed, with several more tournaments and regions to be added for the 2023 season.

Competitors will earn valuable points at each TCT Rated tournament for seeding heading towards a year end TCT Championships and Banquet to be held in November / December 2022 TBA where the official Blackbelt and Underbelt TCT CHAMPIONS will be crowned.

www.TCTsportmartialarts.com has been a labor of LOVE (and a lot of work), and we feel solid about where we are going!

We invite you – Competitors, Judges, Parents, Families, and Friends to jump on board to set sail with us.
