ESKA European Shotokan Karate Do Championships

2 - 4 December, 2022

Winterthur switzerland

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 2 – 4th December 2022. Most European countries have now relaxed their COVID related restrictions on travel and Switzerland has been host to several international sporting events. Details of any COVID related restrictions will be circulated in good time for the championship.

There will be a referees and judges course and examination at this event.

We all look forward to meeting in Switzerland in December to enjoy the very best of European Shotokan Karate.
