Kennedy’s seminar wraps up the first day of the 2013 Fort Bragg Army Combatives Championship Invitational, Dec. 12 through 14, where competitors complete official weigh-in and registration.

“We are pleased to have Tim here to share his experience with our Paratroopers,” said Staff Sgt.

The elimination and intermediate matches will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ritz-Epps Physical Fitness Center, Dec. 13.  Kennedy, an active National Guardsman and former Fort Bragg Green Beret, is expected to be available from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. to meet and greet tournament attendees before the finals and exhibition matches Saturday beginning at 6 p.m. at Sports USA.

 “Whether participating in the tournament, taking our tactical application courses, or even stepping up to fight in an exhibition; each one offers tools essential to today’s total Warrior,” said Yurk.  “This tournament will showcase the attributes of great leaders on all levels.”
