The Executive Committee of the European Karate Federation gathered today in Larnaca (Cyprus) to evaluate the state of the sport in the continent.
Held in Larnaca ahead of the EKF Cadet, Junior & U21 Championships being underway this weekend in the Cypriot city, the gathering had the revision of the financial situation of the organisation and the preparation of the upcoming EKF Congress to take place in Guadalajara (Spain) in March among the main points of the agenda.
The long-term planning of the events of European Karate and the reports of the different EKF Commissions were also analysed. In addition to revising the last details on the continental event in Cyprus, the decision-making body of the EKF discussed the progress around Karate’s participation in the upcoming edition of the European Games.
EKF and WKF President Antonio Espinós said:
“Continental events such as the age-group EKF Championships which are being held in Larnaca this weekend represent the perfect opportunity to demonstrate how much our sport has evolved over the years. Now, our competitions are highly efficient and well-organised sporting events with athletes showcasing outstanding level. I am sure that the EKF Cadet, Junior & U21 Championships in Larnaca are going to be a huge success and for that, I would like to thank the Cyprus Karate Federation and its president Andreas Vasileiou for their efforts and contribution to the progress of our sport.”
