2017 USA National Karate Championship

Ariel Torres Jr. won Gold medal at the USA National Championship

"The 2017 USA/NKF NATIONALS Have come to an end! I qualified for the Senior Team trial in January that will be held in Colorado spring. I also competed in the U21 Male Elite Kata division. I won a total of four rounds. The finals was a great match, I’m beyond honored to have been able to share the tatami with these amazing athletes! I won the Gold medal and have qualified to compete in Buenos Aries, Argentina for the 2017 Pan American Championship as well as the 2017 World Championships that will be held on Spain.

It’s been a hard road but, in the end it was all worth it.. the long hours of training, fighting through the soreness, the tears of frustration when you don’t feel good enough... just so beyond grateful that I made it through all of this... now I must start the process all over again. Except now triple the training process.

To my parents from the bottom of my heart I thank you for everything! You guys have been the biggest inspiration in my life. No matter what everything I am able to do is all thanks to the both of you! This is another victory for us."
