Team Competitive Edge, coached by Jackson Rudolph and Reid, Cole, and Jake Presley, has added two overall grand championship-caliber competitors in Zeke Gomez of Florida and Wassim Dridi of Canada. Gomez won the NASKA grand championship at the U.S. Open last July and Dridi won a grand championship of his own at the AKA Warrior Cup in January. Both young talents come from schools that have a history of producing top sport karate competitors. Gomez trains out of Florida Sport Martial Arts Academy, which has produced the likes of Marc Canonizado, Haley Glass, and many other world champions. Dridi hails from Karate Sport Action in Quebec, the home of Diamond Nationals ring winners Eric and Esteban Tremblay.

The move comes just over a week after Competitive Edge saw four of their players make the jump to Team Paul Mitchell. This move was encouraged by the Competitive Edge coaching staff, as part of the mission statement of the team is to help sport karate competitors gain a platform and community that will propel them towards continued growth and success. These new players are the first step in building the next generation of champions to represent Competitive Edge, and they will be making their debut over the coming months at the Ocean State Grand Nationals and Battle of Atlanta.
