Welcome to the Junior National Team! USA Karate is proud to once again send our Junior National Team to the Junior World Championships. This year’s event will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia and we will be sending the best athletes ages 14-20 to represent the United States in this prestigious international event. You should be proud of your performance at the Team Trials, and we are confident that you will represent the United States well in Jakarta. USA Karate is very proud of our Jr Team and will be providing $20,000 in funding for the support of the Jr Athletes.

The remaining costs are distributed among the athletes in the administrative fee.
