The West Point Karate School will get to show off some of the local talent, as well as host fighters from across the nation on Saturday night.
The seventh annual Karate Tournament will be held at Union Hall, and it will be an all-day event, starting with the Grappling event at 9 a.m.
That will be followed by the Sharp Tournament at 11 a.m.
At 1 p.m., the sparring tournaments will begin.
“It’s a fun event for kids of all ages,” said Sensei Albert Lee, who said that fighters all the way from North Carolina will be on hand.
Trophies and metals will be awarded to the winners, as well as a $150 grand prize to the top male fighter and a $50 grand prize award to the top female fighter.
