Karate, Ganjzadeh leads Iran towards Tokyo 2020: "I'm a perfectionist"

Karate is one of the most practiced sports in the world and in recent years its spread has also touched the smallest countries, bringing to light new and young talents who, from the official entry of the discipline in the Olympic Games, are undermining themselves in the front rows of the most important competitions. Iran is an example of this: many champions have played in the senior national team over the years, but only in the last ones has there been a clear growth to become one of the strongest countries: only at the recent World Championships in Madrid, in fact, the 'Iran ranked second in the medal table with 2 golds, 1 silver and four bronzes. Touching the umpteenth title was Sajad Ganjzadeh, just turned 27 (January 4, ed.) With a palmares to envy: 4 world titles, 3 continental titles, gold at the Asian Games and 7 victories in the major international circuit Premier League.

When I realized that karate could be my way

I started at 10, my brother Mousa was already practicing. When he started traveling with the national team for competitions, I told myself that I too could face opponents from all over the world, I felt that I could win something important. A few years ago he was also the coach of the youth national team, today he still teaches while I ... well I continue to travel the world to fight.
