This year we’ve collaborated and teamed up with Team Proper Up and created Team Proper Up Illest. If you’re into martial arts, you’ll know at least one of these guys as they’ve been sweeping tournaments for the last couple years. Brooklyn’s going to be taking some classes in the next month as she’s found out that Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are her calling.

Latest results.
Brandon Aquino- two 1st place and two grands.
Ervic Aquino- two 1st place and 2nd place.
Joslynn Espinoza- 1st Place.
Bo Hall-1st place.
J.P. Bautista- 1st place.
Patrick Salientes-1st place.
Sean Arceo- 2nd place.
Leon Jefferson-1st place.

  1. Nice to see some kajukenbo guys in the Proper Team representing. You guys are doing good things..keep it up..

  2. What i like and see in team proper that takes them passed what a regular team is that they are more like a family, in tournaments and when there just hanging out they all have a smile on their faces and are really attached to eachother. Along with being some of the best fighters in the entire world they are some of the best people in the entire world.

  3. Team proper ,not only one of the best teams in sport karate but one of the closest teams in sport karate, when you see them together you would think they all grew up together from birth, there always happy and laughing, always giving off good vibes. other than fighting and being the best in the world they also have the freshest gear too date, no one is messing with propers fashion game.
