Checkmat NYC Brings Home Silverware From Pan Ams

Vedha and Jose journeyed out to California to compete at the Pan Ams, and on one of the biggest stages in the sport, managed to win multiple fights and clinch silver medals.

Our brown belt Vedha finished second in the female, medium heavyweight division, and also fearlessly entered the absolute division, where she got bronze.

Competing at blue belt, Jose battled hard and lost in the finals in the heavy weight division, but only by an advantage.

Now our medalists are looking to repeat their success at the World Championships in May.

Check out some photos of Vedha and Jose at Pan Ams!
