"It's a lot of training. We have a lot of extra training days and a lot of extra training times to get ready for this," said Abilene Mixed Martial Arts owner Lary Fields.
Kids of all ages will be breaking things from wood to cement and even baseball bats in a competition with kids from all over the world. But being from a small town plays to their advantage.
"Because we are from a small town like Abilene, we're closer knit," said Fields. "We're a lot closer to each other because you know we rely on each other. We're a team. There's no i in team."
But the lessons and training learned here can also be applied outside of the Tojo.
"One of the things that we always talk about is hard work pays off. The harder you work for something, the more it will pay off down the road," Fields explained.
And the hard work and intense competition are things that will help these kids throughout their lives.
"In life, if you compete at a high level at anything that you do, you're going to be better off. My mom told me when i was a little kid, 'if you be a trash man, you be the best trash man in the world.' And our Tojo motto is you give a 110% at the Tojo, you give a 110% at the tournament, winning takes care of itself. No excuses," said Fields.
