The second edition of the International Clinic Sandra Sanchez was officially inaugurated at the Polideportivo 1º de Mayo sports hall in Talavera de la Reina. The prestigious event was organised by Olympic Games gold medallist and two-time world champion Sandra Sanchez, alongside former national coach Jesus del Moral, and had WKF President Antonio Espinós in attendance.

In addition to Mr Espinós, the clinic's official inauguration saw the attendance of city Mayor José Julián Gregorio, City Councillor for Sport Antonio Núñez, and the presidents of the karate regional federations of Madrid, Extremadura, and Castilla-La Mancha: Antonio Torres, Daniel Timón, and Javier Pineño respectively.

 

This year's clinic attracted over 200 athletes from Spain and a number of countries, eager to learn from the expertise of Sandra Sanchez and Jesus del Moral.

"Sandra Sanchez is a true icon in the world of karate. Her dedication, achievements, and passion for the sport have not only brought her immense success but have also elevated the profile of karate globally.
