EGN International Karate and Fitness Center of West Hempstead students won 53 medals at the 2021 USA Karate National Championships.
After not competing for 18 months due to the coronavirus pandemic, EGN’s competition team earned 28 gold medals, 10 silver medals and 15 bronze medals, as well at the national event held in Chicago, Illinois.
Sensei Elhadji Gaye Ndour, two-time US Open Silver and Bronze medalist and instructor of the West Hempstead-based team, has trained many students who have gone on to win medals at some of the largest competitions throughout the US and the world.
“At EGN International Karate Do our focus is on our students,” the school’s website says.
