World Championship in Karate WUKF
After the Ice Hockey World Championships, Bratislava is to host yet another important sporting event. For the first time, Bratislava will welcome the world’s best karatists of the World Union of Karate-DO Federations. Bratislava will host the 8th WUKF Karate World Championships and the 1st World Championships in Kobudo in all categories – from 6 years-old children to seniors (61+).
From June 17th, crowds of the best karatists will be coming to Bratislava to compete in the World Championships in Karate and Kobudo. From June 20, 2019 to June 23, 2019, the Ondrej Nepela Winter Stadium in Bratislava will become the hub of the world-class karate performances.
The organizer, Slovak Federation of Karate and Martial Arts, will make sure that this year’s WUKF tournament is the best.
“We expect to welcome more contestants than they did in Dundee, Scotland in 2018. We believe that more than 2,800 contestants from around 60 countries will come to Bratislava. Since WUKF is open to a number of different karate federations from one country, its membership base has been growing steadily over the years,“ said the President of the Slovak Federation of Karate and Martial Arts, Mgr. Daniel Baran.
