Last year, when Akshay Kumar introduced his National Karate Tournament, it met with an overwhelming response, and this year too the entries have been pouring in from all over. The overload has been so unexpected that the organisers are apparently flooded with contestants.
Thanks to such unprecedented response and taking into consideration the fact that last year's tournament winners went on to win a silver and three bronze medals at the Japan Karate tournament, Akshay has now decided on expanding.
Akshay, who is pleased with the response, has since decided to take the tournament to the next level by inviting participants from across the seven seas, thus providing a bigger field of techniques. For this aspect, logistically the organizers are planning on getting international talent from the US and other European countries as well as from most South Asian countries to participate in the tournament.
Whatever be the case, with Akshay's international project Breakaway already on the anvil, this tournament just adds another feather in his already impressive hat.
