The captain of Team USA stars in the new episode of the “Getting to Know” series barely a few days after the Kumite ace reached the podium of the Pan American Championships for the fourth consecutive time. “I have been dreaming about Karate in the Olympics even before it was possible, so I am very excited about it. I see that it is a big challenge but that’s what I am here for,” said the Texan athlete. The series brings Karate fans the chance to know more about the best Karatekas in the world. In its fourth episode, the current World ranking leader in Male Kumite -75kg and one of top favourites among fans opens up about his beginnings in the ancient modality as well as his uniqueness as karateka. “My Kumite is closer to Kata than it is to fighting. I feel like other athletes are really worked up, or hard core or ready to go, and I am always trying to keep focused that way. I am one of the few Kumite athletes – maybe the only one – that competes in Kata, because some day the fighting will end and then it will be Kata. I am ready and I am excited for that,” said the 3rd-Dan Wado Ryu karateka.
