Students from Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Bridge City descended on Round Rock on March 1112 for the Tiger Rock Texas National Tournament.

Members competed against the best martial athletes from 24 Tiger Rock Academies from all around Texas. Contestants competed in Traditional Forms, Sport Sparring, One-Steps (White & Yellow Belts), Agility, Board Breaking, Free Design and Weapons Free Design.

Competitors winning Gold medals in Traditional Forms and Sport Sparring attained Titleist standing and are eligible to compete in the Elite Masters Invitational Competition at the Tiger Rock World Championships being held in Baton Rouge, LA in July. Competitors earning a Gold in other events also have Titleist standing. Participants winning a silver or bronze medal earn standing as a Medalist.
