Karatekas aged 18 and under are expected to showcase their fighting prowess when the Kyokushin Union of Zimbabwe stages the second in a series of junior tournaments in Highfield early next month.The tournament follows the staging of a similar competition in Glen View in January.
Kyokushin Union of Zimbabwe committee member, Sempai Kumbirai Musunami, said it is imperative to give young karatekas a platform to demonstrate their fighting ability as they embark on a journey from the shadows of obscurity and into the spotlight.
â€œWeâ€™re aiming at bringing karate to the people because last month we staged the tournament in Glen View, but now weâ€™re hosting it in Highfield. More importantly the tournament will give junior karatekas a chance to prove their worth as we seek to come up with a strong pool of young fighters,â€ he said.
The Kyokushin Union of Zimbabwe is not looking back in an endeavour to expose young karatekas to constant competitive action.
The crusade to bring young talent to the fore continues with the staging of a junior karate tournament in Highfield on the 7th of next month.
The tournament, which is reserved for junior karatekas aged 18 and under, is seen as a fundamental and progressive step towards realising that objective.
