The World Karate Day – A Statement for Karate!

The World Karate Day is to recognize the inclusion of the Karate 2020 sport in the Olympic Program in Tokyo and to promote a permanent admission to the Olympic family.

This is celebrated with a seminar offering 14 areas with a regional, national and international top instructor team and world champions of the WKF. Whether it is for beginners or advanced, children or adults, elderly or disabled people, there is a program for everyone on this day.

The patron is Tegla Loroupe, the official UNICEF ambassador, and Chef de Mission of the refugee team of the IOC during the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro. For this, Ambassador Tegla Loroupe has been honoured as the 2016 UN Person of the Year. With this prominent patron, the WKF also sets an important social signal for the Olympic Games.

Another Highlight of this day:

From a one-hour competition Germany vs. World Selection to a spectacular Kata shows we show all facets of our martial arts and are thus a strong sign for the application for the Olympic Games 2024.
