We were exceptionally proud of all of our competitors whether they made it to the podium or not. This was a very new group of competitors from PMA, only 2 have ever competed internationally. They all worked together, showed great composure and performed very well. As with any tournament, we took away valuable lessons and will implement them moving forward. There were 52 countries there. The United States had 4 clubs there and won a total of 27 medals, making us 12th overall with Poteet Martial Arts bringing 9 of those 27 medals home.
