The tremendous impact of Karate in young ages is showcased once again this weekend in Umag (Croatia) where the second stop of the season of the Karate 1-Youth League will take place from July 5 to 7. 

The idyllic city in the Istria region becomes the main hub of youth Karate with a week-full of activities to celebrate the passion of young karatekas. With over 1200 youngsters taking part in the 2019 WKF Youth Camp & Cup, Umag is ready to welcome one of the most popular events of the season, the 2019 Karate 1-Youth League. 

Nearly 2700 youngsters from 73 countries are registered to participate in the second stop of the season of Karate 1-Youth League.
