“This year was a very ac­tive year for MKF, hav­ing fo­cused on giv­ing our ath­letes in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure. We hosted the 3rd edi­tion of The Small States of Europe Karate Championships in Septem­ber which had record par­tic­i­pa­tion of 250 ath­letes. ]

The Malta Team man­aged to se­cure 3rd place over­all.

We have seen our elite ath­letes tak­ing part in 12 in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions and train­ing sem­i­nars, in­clud­ing the World Karate Championships which were held in Aus­tria last month.

“This year we had re­ward­ing re­sults and this en­cour­ages our sen­seis, tech­ni­cal board as well as our ath­letes to keep fo­cus­ing on im­prov­ing the tech­ni­cal as­pect thus en­sur­ing our ath­letes are well pre­pared for the chal­lenges that lie ahead”, said MKF Pres­i­dent Ken­neth Abela.
