Pan-American Karate Federation Championships

The Panamerican Karate Federation holds an international championship annually. This closed circuit competition brings together elite athletes that have been selected by their respective countries. Kai Leung's Shotojuku sends members to take part in the USA NKF Team Trials annually in order to have athletes qualify for Team USA. Below are some of the results from Shotojuku members who competed as part of Team USA at the PKF Championships over the past few years.
