The second phase of USA Karate senior team selection will take place on January 19, 2019 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The top 6 competitors from last national championship will meet again this coming Saturday to claim their spot on the 2019 USA team headed to Pan American championship in Panama City, Panama and any other competition representing USA Karate.
Our own IMA member, Kamran Madani will be among the competitors in -84 kg. He had to forfeit competing at the previous USA karate finals due to his travel to Japan to compete in the World University, at which he won a gold medal. Now he has to defeat 6 other competitors to once again represent USA in the all major competitions for 2019.
For those of you who are interested, we invited you come to the US Olympic Center this Saturday and cheer on all the competitors, and mostly Kamran. There is no charge for admission. This is our home field opportunity and we need to take advantage of it and be as loud as possible!
Good luck Karman!
