Important information for 2015 and 2016:

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have been unable to solidify a date for 2015 and unfortunately will not be able hold an event this year. We are in the process of working on the American Open World Tour event for 2016. With the additional time to prepare, the 2016 event promises to be the best American Open yet. We look forward to seeing you next year and thank you for your time and support. We apologize for any inconveniences, please feel free to contact us with any further questions or comments.

MAI, the Most Competitive and Supportive School of 2011, 2012 & 2013

As the owner/director of Martial Arts International in Carlsbad, CA, Sensei Aaron LoBell (4th degree black belt "Yodan" in Shorin Ryu Karate) continually strives to produce the highest quality martial arts program available in the North County of San Diego. MAI has been the leading Karate school in Carlsbad, CA for over 19 years. Under Sensei LoBells' leadership, MAI has earned one of the highest reputations in the area for providing world class Karate training in North County. His passion and focus for his school and students drives him to continually seek improvement in martial arts.

With that being said, Sensei and the rest of Team MAI have been implementing a ton of new marketing strategies. Using the guidelines of Martial Arts and incorporating them to business has really proven to be a huge success. With a never-give-up attitude, lots of discipline, and using our new marketing strategies, MAI Carlsbad has signed 200 new students in the first half of 2014. MAI Carlsbad is on track to have 500 training students in their Carlsbad location by January 2015!!

On top of all that, Team MAI is proud to announce the Grand Opening of their 2nd location in late May. We are excited to be offering Karate in two different cities in North County!

As always, it is important to me that both my students and their parents have a positive experience at each tournament we attend. Having a well-planned, organized tournament with well-trained, qualified judges, and the highest level of safety for every participant, is paramount in my mind when choosing to participate in any tournament. Promoter Joe Ellis has demonstrated, and proven, great vision in each of these areas. Joe is a hands-on person who expects excellence from his staff and it results in one of the best and most successful tournaments of the year for the MAI team. Joe’s energy and positive attitude makes this a great experience for all.

If anyone would like help in building their school to a huge success like MAI, please don't hesitate to call us at 760-438-7477 and set up a consultation. We have methods and strategies that can easily be applicable to any dojo worldwide. Here’s wishing you great success in 2014 and beyond!
