If you like top-notch karate, two-by-four smashing, that type of thing, you'll really like this.

Moncton-based Atlantic Canada Kyokushin Karate hosts the North American Karate Championships today at Mathieu-Martin High School in Dieppe.

The event, which will feature nearly 80 athletes from across Canada, United States, Armenia and Belgium, will be used as qualifying for the world championships in Australia in November.

"We'll have the best of the best from Canada and the United States. The talent level will be pretty high," said event co-ordinator Ray Cormier, who operates the Atlantic Canada Kyokushin Karate organization in the Maritimes.

"People can expect full-contact knockdown fighting. These are people who break two-by-fours, baseball bats with their shins. There will be demonstrations with bricks. There's no gear, there's no shin pads, nothing on their hands. It's quite a show."

The championships, which is open to fighters of all martial arts styles, will feature both semi-knockdown and knockdown divisions, along with various demonstrations.

Preliminary action will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The major event of the day will be the knockdown finals beginning at 6 p.m., which will determine who qualifies for the world championships.

"That's going to be the major event and that's where you'll see the top fighters. It should be very exciting," Cormier said.

Cormier said he'll have 12 athletes from his Atlantic Canada Kyokushin Karate organization competing today. Ones to watch include world women's heavyweight champion Monelle Richard, Melanie Tremblay, Robert Poirier, Andre Doiron, Martin Savoie, J.J. Nowlan, Mathieu Boucher and Guy Marquis, a RCMP officer from Lameque who is a five-time Canadian champion.

It's the first time the North American championships has ever been held in New Brunswick. Cormier said it's biggest karate event to ever hit the province.
