The reason that I post this is that the NKF is the NGB of karate that is a full Medal sport at the Pan Ams and a ful fleged NGB. This NGB has had some problems but seems to have bounced back. They really run a clean event about 3000 competitors from 50 to 60 countries Friday thru Sunday. This is our second year attending and Charlie will be fighting. Kym is rehabing a ankle injury. When you compare this NGB to ours we lose badly from professional/competence stand point. I will give updates as to how things are going over the weekend.
