We hope you will take advantage of some of the benefits this competition has to offer including: discounted room rates, FREE parking at hotel, and our new tournament location with FREE parking minutes away from Downtown New Orleans. We are home to the 2018 Mardi Gras.

In our 31st year, we are pleased to announce the return of the Underbelts Super Fights where winners will take home a LA Pro-Am Medal. We have separated boys and girls Super Fight Divisions from ages 10 years and over, and have added a full lineup of WKC-Rated divisions! We will have prize money for our Adult Black Belt Grand Championships and CHAMPIONSHIP RINGS for ALL of our Grand Champion winners.

Don't forget, the Louisiana Pro-Am is a SUPER REGIONAL QUALIFIER for the 2018 WKC World Championships later this year. Our staff and dedicated judges promise to make your experience in New Orleans a memorable one. We'll see you February 2nd & 3rd in New Orleans!
