Here Kalem Klinefelter poses with Chad his opponent of a few minutes privious. They had one of the best fights of the night, being fairly evenly matched standing up, Chad had a good game on the ground that challenged Kalem in the area where Klinefelter felt the most comfortable. It was one of the most exciting matches of the night as well, the crowd was on its feet when Kalem finished with a triangle choke in the second round.
Kalem started training with Steve Smith at Premier Martial Arts in Walla Walla about 2 to 3 months prior to the fight and had about 1 year of Jiujitsu before that. Kalem is one of the fastest studies Steve Smith has seen and has a real natural way of moving on the ground. He is coming a long way in striking and should have a good amature career if he decides to pursue it.
Good luck to Kalem in the Future!
