In 1972 Sensei Morrone competed in Chicago Illinois at the Great Lakes Regional Tournament and won a position to be on a five man team. The team was then allowed to compete in Los Angeles California for the final eliminations for the U.S. Team.

In California he competed and won a position on a five man team with two alternates to represent the United States in the Second World Tournament in Paris France. Other Team members were Tony Tullerners, John Gehlsen, Frank Smith (Capt.), George Byrd, James Yabe, and James Field.

Despite controversy brought up by Chuck Norris and some others, the team was selected. The team went on to Paris France and competed with 44 other countries.

Half way through the first day of competition, problems arose over judging, and some teams having the ability to rotate their line-up, and others did not. Despite protests, the tournament went on. Then the Japanese team withdrew from the competition. U.S.A., Canada and several other teams followed suit. The competition went on with France winning the tournament.
