CTF-Nationals-red-&-gold

The CTF Nationals Competition is open to all CTF member black belts (1st  recommended and up) who qualify in their regions during the year. Please see the Nationals Tournament Rules for qualification requirements. The location of the Nationals  Competition varies each year.  The tournament location rotates between the Nashville area and the Memphis area each year.

Black belts accumulate points during the Tournament season in their various  regional qualifiers. Competition in the National Championship Divisions  is by invitation only. We will hold additional divisions for  non-qualifying black belts and colored belts at the CTF Nationals. Click on the links to see the current Point Standings. The top Qualifiers in each Region will receive invitations to compete in  the Black Belt Nationals. (If there is a tie for 3rd place, both will be invited).  Other regions who do not hold qualifiers will be allowed to appoint one black belt per division to compete for the National  championships.

The 2017 Nationals will be held at the Landers Center in Southaven, MS (Just south of Memphis, TN) on November 11th . Invitations will be issued to all Qualifiers in early October.

Winners of the Black Belt National Championship in each division receive a specially embroidered dobok jacket with their name and the designation as National Champion.  These National Championship doboks are presented at our Annual Christmas Awards Banquet in December.
