Welcome to AAU Karate Virginia!
Welcome to AAU Karate Virginia! We are excited that you have taken an interest in traditional karate competition for men, women, and children of all ages, ranks, and abilities.
On this page you will find links to “signing up” with AAU Karate…please take time to join our program, and get ready for exciting competitions all year long! My name is John “Moose” Axsom, and I am your State Director for AAU Karate Virginia. I follow in the footsteps of many legendary Karate-ka and Directors, and it is my intention to do my best to help you become a vital part of Team AAU. I want to thank Sensei Mike Eggleston for his devotion to our program, and growing it into a power house throughout our great Commonwealth. All of our member clubs, and individual members, hope to carry on the great legacy he established through hard-work, and dedication.
Team VA AAU will host two major events each tournament season: the Fall Invitational, and the Spring State Championship Qualifier. We hope to see you at both of these exciting events. Likewise, we offer some awesome gifts and prizes throughout the year to include the “Sensei Mike Eggleston Spirit Award.” MENSORE (welcome) to the Virginia AAU, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to me should you have any questions, comments, or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 757-223-9944!
