Dreamcup World and Disability Karate

Dear Country Representatives, Branch Chiefs, dojo leaders and senseis,

We are glad to invite you for the Dream cup team World in Budapest / Hungary

Again, we are looking forward to a great and spectacular tournament

Special attention: For the first time we will introduce a kata championship for karateka with disability into a Shin/Kyokushin event. This competition will take place under the guidance of the “IKF I-karate Global” organisation which already has many years of experience in the field of karate for children and adults with disabilities. We do not discriminate anyone and have designed a unique system for all forms of disability.

We want to show that karate is a sport accessible for everyone. For this competition we have chosen to compete in “kata individual” and “Kata pairs”. Kata pairs means that an I-karateka runs a kata together with a regular karateka. The emphasis here is on running the kata in synchroneity , on which points are given by the referees.

In cooperation with EFKO president shihan Koen Spitaels, whose organization has started the European development of I-karate/Para Karate, it will be another activity that we all should try to promote and honour with our presence.

If you have students with mental or physical disabilities, students with down syndrome, autism, hearing impairment or vision impairment, don’t hesitate to inscribe and give them the challenge of a lifetime.

To all our I-karateka’s, it will be a great feeling to be able to participate in a big competition where you will feel that you belong to one big family namely Karate.
