WUKF European Tour
The World Union of Karate-Do Federations (WUKF) is delighted to announce the WUKF European Tour. This new idea will create a ranking system for athletes where they can collect points based on results and become European Tour Champion at the end of the year.
The tour will be held under the auspices of the European Union of Karate-Do Federations (EUKF). As this is the first year of the WUKF European Tour, we have preselected existing competitions to implement the ranking process. The tour will be reviewed at the end of 2022 with the opportunity for existing federations to host a WUKF European Tour event in 2023.
“I am very excited about this development within our European federations and I’m sure the tour will grow to become an established feature of the WUKF/EUKF calendar. I would like to thank the commission for their hard work and wish all the athletes the very best of success.”
