Synopsis

This documentary highlights the difficulties experienced in creating champions in Ontario.
Every day we’re seeing athletes faced with hardships created by stringent rules, underfunding, and a complete lack of understanding from “higher-ups.”
Karate faces a real challenge: How do we make the transition from an amateur sport to a professionally organized industry with an environment for raising true champions?
We attempt to cover this issue in-depth with interviews with people who are directly involved. The Uphill Battle is required viewing for anyone who believes karate in Ontario is ready to move forward.
