The tournament was started by Akshay himself, thanks to his love for karate and fitness. Speaking about it, Akshay had earlier said, “Karate is me. I am Akshay because of Karate. I owe it my life, my career, my reason for being the disciplined action hero that I am. I think karate should be made compulsory in schools so that children have the ability to defend and discipline themselves.”
