Dakota Budokan comes out on top as 
Sioux falls Open Team Champions
For the 2nd straight year

Each year the Sioux Falls Open Martial arts tournament is held inviting all schools of any martial arts style to participate in a gamut of events: Submission grappling, Empty hand forms, Weapon forms, Point fighting and Sport Ju-jitsu continuous fighting divisions to crown the best overall martial artists and schools.

Schools of different styles came from neighboring cities and states with the Dakota Budokan as the target in their sites, to reclaim the top team trophy the Budokan had upset them for the year before...  After more than 10 hours of competition the Dakota Budokan proved the year before was no fluke and that a new legacy was here
