Since 2017, the optional use of karategis with the embroidered brands on the shoulders, in red or blue, has been authorized for Karate – 1 Events (Premier League, Series A and Youth League).

 

In 2020, it was approved the mandatory use of them for Karate - 1 Premier League events and optional use for all WKF events, including World Championships.

 

During these 6 years, the number of competitors who have chosen to use this type of karategi has significantly increased, making it easier for spectators to identify athletes, as well as greater visibility and showiness of the competition.

 

On the other hand, this greater brand exposure on “WKF Approved” karategi increase the possibilities of obtaining sponsors for both NFs and athletes.

 

Based on the above mentioned, the WKF Executive Committee approved on October 22, 2021, the mandatory use of "WKF Approved" karategis with embroidered brands on the shoulders, in RED and BLUE, in all WKF official events (World Championships and Karate 1 - Premier League, Series A and Youth League) from January 1, 2023.

 

From 1st January 2023 will be mandatory in all the WKF official events

the use of “WKF approved” karategis with embroidered brands on the

shoulders in RED and BLUE.
