Texas Karate Organization
TKO LEAGUE MISSION STATEMENT
We are a League that promotes sport martial arts by creating opportunities for competitors, coaches and martial art schools of all backgrounds to participate and advance in the sport through local, state and world championship.
We are committed to excellence and the improvement of our sport. We are committed to providing a safe and positive environment for all members.
PROMOTE SPORT MARTIAL ARTS
We want our athletes to receive as much publicity as possible because we believe that the more people learn about our sport the more inclined they will be to join the ranks of our league. We are proud of our sport and we seek to celebrate it whenever possible. We seek to continue this tradition of competitive excellence. When our elite athletes are successful in fulfilling their dreams our society benefits from the inspiration these athletes give us.
We have established a rating system for tournaments and athletes, as well as judging parameters that will serve to elevate the standards and quality of Sport martial arts. We will have two ways for competitors to be ranked and qualify for State Finals… ”Qualifier” and “Non Qualifier”! Tournaments that uses TKO rules and divisions will be considered a TKO “Qualifier”, and tournaments that does not use TKO rules will be considered a “Non Qualifier”. This simply means “Qualifier” is the top ranking, and “Non Qualifier” is the secondary ranking at STATE FINALS. “Non Qualifier” tournaments can accumulate points, but will be below the “Qualifier” at State. There is a total of 11 TKO Conferences throughout Texas with each Conference having its own “Qualifier” tournaments. The players from each of the Conferences with the most points will earn top ranking at State Finals. THE MORE YOU COMPETE AND WIN AT TKO QUALIFIERS, THE BETTER CHANCE YOU WILL RECEIVE THE #1 SEED AT STATE!
The state tournament is open to anyone regardless of being a T.K.O. member; however, all T.K.O. members will be eligible to be seeded (placed in a preferred position of competition) at the state finals. Non seeded competitors will be seeded as “Wild Card” players. The winner of the wild card players will then advance with the seeded players to compete for the state title. We will be using TKO rules for the T.K.O. state finals. All competitors are required to email or mail in their tabulated points before the November deadline. The season begins January and ends October of each year. A copy of the official TKO rules can be downloaded on our website.
TKO promises to endeavor to bring sport karate in Texas to a new level. The TKO publications will unite formerly separate leagues by making martial artists’ names familiar to each other and by forming friendships that span the state. You can expect to see TKO publications recognizing new and up-and-coming faces as well as reviewing current tournaments. We look forward to another fantastic year and hope to see you real soon!

League leaders are automatically calculated as tournament placements become available and/or are updated. Results of a tournament are typically available as each division is scored and confirmed. However they can be delayed until after the tournament is complete or may not be made available at all, depending on the tournament host's desires.
NOTE: This leader board only includes points earned for tournaments that were scored using TournamentTiger.
