KOI 17 World Cup - Italy 2008

The city of Latina in Italy was the location for the 17th KOI World Cup. The event was held from 28th June - 7th July and was attended by a total of five hundred instructors, students and competitors representing twenty four countries. The weather was extremely hot and humid and with the added problem of the air conditioning not working in the sports hall until Thursday it was hard going for most. Despite this the event was a great success. Several courses were available and everyone picked up lots of tips and information to improve their karate. The competition lasted three days from Friday to Sunday and some top level kumite and kata was observed. KOE attended with nine students and instructors with four entering the competition. Congratulations go to our lady kata entry Sybille Sababi from Reigate, Surrey who won gold in her category.
