NASKA Comes To Toronto

A world martial arts championship is coming to Toronto

For Immediate Release - November 25, 2019

 Nathan Skoufis, a lifetime resident of Guelph, has always wanted to have a world championship event in his home country and  province but it always seemed like a dream. His wish came true, a world championship is confirmed for Toronto. 

It will be a unique feeling for Skoufis to just drive one hour from his home to attend the event and be able to sleep in his own bed the night before the event, usually he has to fly to international events. 

Nathan Skoufis is a multiple time world champion and currently is ranked #1 in the world by NASKA, NASKA is the most prestigious sanctioning body in the world hosting the top events globally. Events include Chicago, Sacramento, Philadelphia, Quebec City, Atlanta, Washington, Orlando, Miami, Myrtle Beach, Minneapolis and now Toronto has been added officially to the schedule for 2019 and 2020. 

The NASKA event has confirmed attendants from countries all over the world, all hoping to claim the title. NASKA is recognized by the federal government. 

Skoufis said “It is a special moment to have a NASKA World Championship here in Ontario and an amazing opportunity for the community. Many of my family members and friends rarely get to see me compete live, as they are so far away. It is usually on T.V. etc. that they are able to watch along”. 

Toronto is the final tournament of the NASKA World Championship Season. The event is one a young Skoufis first attended in 2005, long before it was recognized as a world championship. The 2005 event was in the early years of his competition career, that has now spanned nearly 2 decades and travelled to compete globally. 

Martial Arts Styles presented at the NASKA world championship event will include: karate, kickboxing, kung fu, boxing and tae kwon do.

Skoufis has claimed victories in NASKA, NBL, WAKO, WKA, WKC, NMAC, NAFMA and IFMA over his career, representing Canada and the community.
