Mannatech and ISKA Forge Exclusive Partnership at 37th Annual U.S. Open
COPPELL, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Sport Karate Association (ISKA) recently selected Mannatech
as its exclusive dietary supplement provider. The announcement was
made at ISKA's
37th annual U.S. Open, which featured more than 3,000 of
the top martial artists from 40 participating countries and will be nationally
televised on ESPN2 tomorrow, July 23, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m.
"For the first time in the 25-year history of ISKA, we are happy to
announce our partnership with Mannatech and share it with our more than
28,000 studio owners," said Cory Schafer, president of ISKA.
"Third party certification by reputable organizations means Mannatech
products have achieved a very rare level of purity, safety and trust,"
A. Sinnott, Ph.D., MNS, co-CEO and chief science officer of Mannatech.
"Many of our products are already certified Kosher and certified for
GMP compliance by NSF International, but we believe having products
certified by the ISKA governing body confirms the benefits our
supplements have for elite athletes and others wh are very particular
about what they put into their bodies."
The partnership will allow various Mannatech products to carry the 'ISKA
Certified for Elite Athletes' seal, as well as a proven
business-building opportunity for all studio owners represented by ISKA.
Present at the U.S. Open in Orlando were elite martial arts
practitioners and Team
MannatechSM athletes Chip
Townsend and Ben
Parra1 who each set world records.
"Because of the variety of products offered in stores today, students
often get confused with what nutritional supplements to take," said
Townsend. "This partnership will take the guesswork out of the purchase
because Mannatech products are developed with real food technology solutions
and without any banned substances."
Replay dates of the ISKA U.S. Open will air on ESPN2, August 19 and 22
at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
