POSTPONED – 2020 Grandmaster Roy Richmond Legacy Tournament

POSTPONED - 2020 Grandmaster Roy Richmond Legacy TournamentToday, I must announce that we have decided to postpone the 2020 Grandmaster Roy Richmond Legacy Tournament after great deliberation.

I have been working tirelessly with my organizing committee of Grandmasters from New York, Washington D.C. and North Carolina to provide an extraordinary tournament for our athletes.

Our pre-planning, dedication and financial commitment is essential in making the 2020 Grandmaster Roy Richmond Legacy Tournament an event that is memorable and enjoyable for our competitors and spectators.

Not only that, our athletes and coaches have shown amazing dedication to training in advance of our competition and we are truly grateful that they choose our tournament to compete.

I will announce a new date shortly so please check back for more information.

    All the best! My son’s karate classes was also cancelled and he was looking forward to competing at the tournament – let us hope that things will clear soon.

    That’s a shame for the competitors and spectators, but I think it was absolutely the right thing to do. Large gatherings like a tournament are just asking for viral transfer.
