WUKF European Tour

About the European Tour 

The World Union of Karate-Do Federations (WUKF) is delighted to announce the 2023 WUKF European Tour. This ranking system is 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 WUKF rules using Uventex software and follows a very successful 2022 tour with events in Scotland, England, Slovakia and Bratislava.

“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.”
