HALLSVILLE, Texas (KLTV) - The 24th annual Warrior of God martial arts championship took place Saturday. The event saw competitors from Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas take part in koto, which includes weapons and sparring.
The participants were divided up from beginners to advanced to black belts.
“What we try to do is put on a really good event,” said Scott Brown, an 8th degree black belt from Longview. “We’re just not teaching martial arts, we’re teaching respect, sportsmanship. We’re teaching them what they need in life to be successful.”
KLTV’s Bob Hallmark competed in the event and won two out of the three categories to win grand champion.
