IFK Uruguay 8th National Tournament

The VIII IFK Uruguay National was held on October 9th at Santa Maria College Gymnasium facilities in Montevideo City.

After 3 years of virtual tournaments due to the pandemic, we have restarted the national circuit with participants from all of our dojos and a total of 125 competitors.

The Tournament was divided into two separate instances. Throughout the morning, IFK members – children, cadets, and adults – competed in Kata, Kumite Klicker, and Kumite w/sand bags with outstanding performances. U-18 Kumite KO fights were held in the afternoon with invited organizations joining in categories for competitors aged 10 – 17.  We were glad to see so much potential and great performances from those who are to become the future of our karate style.
