Dear friends and colleagues,
As the world emerges from the shadow of COVID and life returns to something approaching normality, ESKA members, their families and supporters can once again look forward to our annual European championships.
On this very important occasion our hosts, the Swiss Karate-do Renmei are organising the championships in the city of Winterthur, Switzerland, a city which can trace its ancestry back to the time of Christ.
This year will mark the 35th ESKA championships and the 3rd time in our organisation’s history that Switzerland has organized this event. We once more look forward to experiencing that wonderful combination of generous Swiss hospitality combined with effective organization.
There is every reason to be optimistic about the opportunities to travel and compete in this championships which is taking place from 26 – 28th November 2021. There are two vaccines for COVID 19 that are expected to be available early in 2021 with plans in all European countries for a mass vaccination campaign.
We hope that you will plan so that we can meet in Switzerland next November to enjoy the very best of European Shotokan Karate.
President European Shotokan Karate-do Association
