San Marino 28-29/9/2018 Europe karate championships

October 07,2018

The 5th edition of the small states of Europe karate championships has been organized in San Marino 28-29/9/2018 with great success.  The countries that had the right to participate at SSEKF championships are those that are members of the Games of the Small States of Europe GSSE-multisport event. During the championships all 9 nations participated (Andorra, Cyprus, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro and San Marino).

President of S.S.E.K.F Andreas Vasileiou stated that “this would not be a success without the tremendous support of the San Marino karate federation and its president Maurizio Mazza and more over the executive and organizing committee. Moreover I want to praise the executive committee members for their full support. Special thanks to the president of EKF/WKF Antonio Espinos for his continuous support and guidance to succeed the entrance of karate as a full member of Games of the Small States of Europe GSSE for 2021.” Now, our aim remains the same to continue working hard to enter the GSSE 2023.

The 5th edition of the SSEKF proved to be the biggest championships organized ever with 489 entries in both individual/team kata and kumite in 4 tatamis. The athletes experienced a tremendous positive change in the level of the competitions and thus they were many fights that it was difficult to predict the winner.

Next year’s championship will be in Iceland 14-15/9/2019.
