New Karate 1-Youth League to showcase Karates influence on young ages


The popularity of Karate among youngsters will be further showcased next year with the KARATE 1-YOUTH LEAGUE. The newly-created competition makes its debut in 2018 and aims at highlighting the growing influence of the sport in young ages. 

Established under the umbrella of Karate 1, and designed to complete the Karate 1-Premier League and Karate 1-Series A, the Karate 1-Youth League is created following the remarkable success of underage Karate competitions. Karatekas aged 12 to 17 will have the opportunity to display their abilities and continued progress in the sport in this first edition of the series of events for youngsters. 

Four tournaments will comprise the 2018 Karate 1-Youth League.  The new competition format is due to begin in Sofia (Bulgaria) in May and will conclude in Caorle-Venice (Italy) in December. The 2018 Karate 1-Youth League will also visit Umag (Croatia) in June and Cancun-Quintana Roo (Mexico) in October. 

As the Karate world is counting the days to enjoy the anticipated debut of the sport at the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires 2018, the World Karate Federation unveiled the new international event to provide more platforms for the development of young competitors. 

Over 2000 young karatekas from 64 countries participated this year in the WKF Youth Camp which was held in Umag (Croatia). The Karate 1-Youth League is expected to continue the record-breaking participation of youngsters in major underage international events thus further demonstrating the expansion of youth Karate.
