This year’s Premier League Open will be accompanied by 2 other events, an International Coaching Clinic and an International Referee Seminar. This three-in-one Event is expected to improve international friendship and relationship among all participants from 25 countries.
The commemoration in 2014 of the 50th anniversary of Indonesia Karate-do Federation (FORKI) makes this event even more meaningful and important. FORKI is a strong reference between the 188 WKF members worldwide and the hosting of this Premier League, as well as the World Championships for Juniors, Cadets and U21 in Indonesia next year reinforces not only this reference but also FORKI's image and prestige before the big karate karate family along the 5 continents.
