The Successes of the 2023 Pan American Games Karate Competition

Karate at the 2023 Pan American Games

The 2023 Pan American Games featured a riveting karate competition at the Polideportivo Villa El Salvador, with the events running from November 3 to November 5. This gathering of martial arts talent showcased a total of 12 events, equally divided between male and female competitors, with 106 karatekas from 17 different nations.

Throughout the qualification phase, 96 athletes secured their participation through four rigorous qualification tournaments. An additional 10 athletes were granted entry as a nod to their victories at the 2021 Junior Pan American Games, underscoring the event’s commitment to fostering emerging talent.

In each individual karate event, nine athletes competed for the gold, with the exception of the individual kata category, which featured eight athletes due to the specific demands and standards of the discipline. Nations were limited to entering a maximum of 12 athletes, with only one competitor per individual event, ensuring a diverse representation of countries. This rule was relaxed for the winners of the 2021 Junior Pan American Games, providing these skilled individuals with the opportunity to compete among the senior ranks.

Chile, enjoying the advantage of being the host nation, automatically qualified the maximum quota of 12 athletes, ensuring the local fans had a full roster of Chilean competitors to support.
