Scheduled to take place from May 1 to 3 in Limassol (Cyprus), the Karate 1-Youth League Limassol was the opening event of the season of Karate’s first-class series of international tournaments for youngsters. The cancellation of the event is made effective upon the decision of the local organisers in line with the regulation of the government of Cyprus to control the global pandemic of coronavirus.

Conceived as a platform for the development of youngsters in their quest to progress in the sport, the Karate 1-Youth League puts the focus on young athletes of ages 12 to 17. The 2020 season was supposed to start in Limassol (Cyprus) from May 1 to 3 with stops in Porec (Croatia) from July 3 to 5, Monterrey (Mexico) from September 25 to 27 and Venice (Italy) from December 4 to 6.

The WKF will continue to stay in close collaboration with all relevant organisations as the overall developments of the Covid-19 crisis continue being closely monitored. The WKF remains fully committed to the safety and well-being of athletes, staff members and fans.
