In the early ninetys the Ultimate Force Martial Arts Tournament was started by Master Curtis Smith. His goal was to provide a venue that gave the youth of our community an event where they could engage in friendly competition that would also raise money to fund youth outreach programs in the area.
In recent years Master Smith and The Ultimate Force Martial Arts Championship have had the oppurtunity to work with several local youth outreach programs in our community. One of the most notable of these is Martial Artists Against Street Violence(MAASV). MAASV gives youth in high crime neighborhoods the oppurtunity to learn and grow under the tutelage of positive role models. These individuals give their time and experience freely to afford these youth the oppurtunity to train and compete. The program emphasizes self control and finding positive alternatives to violent solutions and helps the youth to become a more productive member of the community. Part of the proceeds from the Ultimate Force Championship go to providing equipment and uniforms to MAASV students.
The Ultimate Force features a Gi and No-gi grappling competition supervised by Sensei Sonny Achille. For schedule, divisions and rules please see the flyer.
