On June 8, the Cuban karate team left for a base of understanding from the 12th to the 20th of this month on Guatemalan territory, in the cities of Escuintla and Maztenango.
Under coach Elisir Lamos, a total of nine athletes set out for the event, with a layover in Panama, five men and four women to prepare primarily for the Central American and Caribbean Games San Salvador 2023.
