Ladies and Gentlemen,

On behalf of Georgian Fullcontact Karate National Federation I have honor to invite you to the European Karate Championship, which will take place on 26-27 of June, 2021 in Tbilisi, GEORGIA. (It’s also a selection tournament for the WKO 2022-World Karate Championship in weight categories, to be held in Poland).

Hopefully in 2021, the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic will be successfully completed and we can lead normal lives, relationships and trainings. Postponing of the European Championship, which was scheduled in 2020 and holding it in 2021 is a big challenge and responsibility for us. I would like to inform you that the decision to organize the EC-2021 in Tbilisi was made together with the EKO, Ministry of Sport and relevant governmental health agencies. The decision considers the full provision of requirements, based on the existing health recommendations, support and co-financing from the state of Georgia.

Karate history in Georgia, as a sport and Martial Art Kyokushin/Shinkyokushinkai goes back to 40 years. It is developing every year and serves as healthy physical and spiritual lifestyle for children, young people end elder members of our society.

Hosting European Championship for the second time is a big honor for Georgia. I believe that tournament will be carried on the best way possible and will be remembered as one of most important events in EKO and history of Georgian Sport. I would like to thank the EKO for its trust and support during this difficult time. I hope that through joint efforts the EC-2021 will be successfully held in Tbilisi, Georgia.

EKO, GFKNF, Organizing Committee, Ministry of Sport, Tbilisi City Hall together with all sponsors and supporters will do everything to host EC-2021 on best way possible. We hope this tournament will be one more step forward in process of developing Shinkyokushinkai and Full Contact Karate. I wish good luck to all participants – fighters, coaches, referees, representatives of media, and officials.

I wish you health, spiritual and physical strength and success.

Avtandil Shengelia President of Georgian Fullcontact Karate National Federation-GFKNF, WKO Branch Chief, Shihan 6th Dan.
