About Mr. Ron Tobin

Mr. Tobin began his martial arts training with National Karate in 1992 and was promoted to 1st degree black belt in September of 1998. He currently holds the rank of 5th degree black belt. He says, “I was always a hyper child who nobody could control but when I joined National Karate, my instructors showed me how to use that energy and emphasized focus. National karate has always been my go-to place for fun, challenges, and self-achievement. Now as an instructor I plan to spread the same fond memories I had as a child growing up.”

Free tournament, no pressure! Tons of fun!!🤩 We are super excited about the upcoming Corona Cup Free, Live, Virtual Martial Arts competition coming up May 30-31! We already held two free virtual events - the Quarantine Qualifier and the Sanitizer Showdown and the feed back for the events has been super positive!

⌨️ We hope you will register for and participate in the Corona Cup - it is free and open to every style, age, gender, ability level and interest. We teamed up with the geniuses at MATAction to make sure the registration and competition experience is smooth and easy! Register at:

Here are some of the reasons why we are hosting these free events
✅ 1. We are in the middle of a pandemic and many martial arts schools have had to shut down and teach classes remotely. Even those starting to reopen are limited in capacity and many people still aren't ready to get back into group classes. These tournaments are a way to stay work out and keep training until we can get back into our martial arts schools.
✅ 2. We've heard positive feedback from instructors who are using these free events as a way to inspire and motivate students to stick to online classes and even sign up for private lessons to prepare for the virtual events. Some instructors are using the events as part of their training and testing curriculum.
✅ 3. In-person sport karate tournaments are a whole lot of fun but it is hard to get people to try them. One of the really cool outcomes of these free events is seeing a lot of new participants that we have never seen before and who have never competed before.
✅ 4. These events are a great way to improve yourself. You may be competing against other people but we encourage you to use the events to compete against yourself - each one is a challenge for you to perfect your techniques and increase your self-confidence.
✅ 5. The events are a way to be more inclusive - we've added para divisions so that those in our martial arts community who want to also compete have a comfortable and welcoming place to show off their skills.
✅ 6. And overall, the events are a whole lot of FUN - for the competitors, judges and for us at SportMartialArts and MATAction. We get to see your martial arts talent, watch people get better from event to event, meet new people, laugh with you as pets and younger siblings jump into the fray and really connect our martial arts community. We love this sport and this is how we can give back.

😷 We hope to see you this weekend at the Corona Cup!
