Karate is one of the fastest growing combat sports in the world and it is one of the four non-Olympic sports that will take place at the inaugural European Games. Karate involves a variety of techniques, including blocks, strikes, evasions, throws, and joint manipulations. Karate training is divided into three aspects: ‘kihon’ (basic techniques), ‘kata’ (sequence of movements), and ‘kumite’ (sparring). At Baku 2015, there will be kata and kumite medal events on display.
At the Baku 2015 European Games, the Karate competition will take place over two days on 13–14 June 2015 and consist of 10 medal events in individual kumite and 2 in individual kata. Europe’s best performing athletes - 48 men and 48 women - will showcase their talents on the strikingly beautiful tatami of Crystal Hall.
