It is for me and for all of the components of the World Karate family a great pleasure to visit Guadalajara and Spain. Around 100 ries from the five continents are going to meet in Guadalajara around Karate, a sport that is proving day by day not only how deep it is merged in our society but also the added value that its practice gives irrespective of age and condition.
Spain is a very important piece of the World Karate Federation, for both qualitative and quantitative reasons. We have lived the progress that karate has experienced in this ry and how positively it has been contributing to the worldwide development of our sport.
I also want to congratulate the Royal Spanish Karate Federation for the commitment, professionalism and interest n for the successful organization of these Championships, and wish that this event will serve to further promote karate popularity and practice throughout the ry.
In the name of the whole World Karate, I want to thank you for your inestimable contribution, and I am sure that we all will enjoy unforgettable days in Guadalajara.
Antonio Espinós, President of World Karate Federation.
