An extended organizing committee for the preparation and holding
of the 3rd KWU World Championship has gathered again in Ekaterinburg on August 29th, 2017
During the meeting in a sequence of figures, decisions and minutes, it was pleasant to see a long-awaited presentation of the 3rd World Championship mascots.
Yes, that’s mascots with an “S”! This World Championship is going to be accompanied by two Mascots. They are, just like on the Ekaterinburg’s coat of arms, a bear and a sable.
A female sable was named Katya (Russian short analogue of Kate; translator’s note) and a bear was named Burzhick. Both mascots are karate fighters.
Those who were lucky enough to hold them in their hands, liked them a lot. KWU co-chairman Shihan Yury Trutnev also gave his approval to the Ekaterinburg couple.
So, very soon owners of the 2015 World Championship mascot Khabrick tiger will be able to fulfill their mascots collection with a female sable Katya and Burzhick the bear.
These soft mascots will not be introduced to the mass market, so it will only be possible to acquire them at the Ekaterinburg Championship or win them in our contests.
