“The development of Karate has never reached such high levels. We are experiencing a great moment for Karate and the progress of our sport is as outstanding as ever before,” said WKF President Antonio Espinos. “However, as you know, my task is not to be complacent but to put a focus on the areas in which we can continue growing,” added the head of the World Karate Federation in the opening of the Congress.
Delegates from 95 national federations gathered at the WKF Extraordinary Congress celebrated in the city of the Canary Islands on the score of the 2017 World Cadet, Junior & U21 Championships. The plenary session of the international Karate organisation hailed the exciting future for the sport.
