WKF to organise Test Event to evaluate COVID-19 guidelines

The World Karate Federation is hosting a Test Event in Lisbon (Portugal) this weekend to analyse the implementation of the WKF COVID-19 Guidelines at upcoming major competitions.

The World Karate Federation is hosting a Test Event in Lisbon (Portugal) this weekend to analyse the implementation of the WKF COVID-19 Guidelines at upcoming major competitions.

In order to guarantee the wellbeing of competitors and staff members in all WKF events, as well as to ensure the correct application of the COVID-19 Guidelines, the WKF has decided to organise the WKF COVD-19 Test Event this weekend. All the different requirements and new regulations that need to be implemented at competitions as a result of the coronavirus pandemic will be evaluated at the event.

Organised in cooperation with the Portuguese Karate Federation, the Test Event aims at demonstrating the efficiency of the WKF COVID-19 Guidelines and streamlining the modified competition protocol to minimise the effects of the epidemic at major tournaments.

The capital of Portugal is going to be the venue of the first WKF event of the calendar next year as the 2021 Karate 1-Premier League Lisbon will be the opening tournament of the season. The event is scheduled to take place in Lisbon from February 19 to 21, 2021.

“The WKF COVID-19 Test Event is the first WKF event that we are organising in nearly ten months. In this time, all the different bodies of the WKF have worked incessantly to ensure a safe return to activity. We decided to take all the necessary precautions before hosting an actual event, as the safety of our competitors is our main concern. This Test Event represents the final step in this process and the right way to demonstrate that Karate is truly a safe sport,” said WKF President Antonio Espinós.

“I want to thank the Portuguese Karate Federation and its president Carlos Silva for their proactivity and for all their efforts to make this event a success, and for the strong collaboration between the local organising team and the WKF team” added Mr Espinós.
