Yerevan will host the Kyokushin Karate European Championships at Mika Sports Complex from 7 to 8 April.

The president of Kyokushin Karate Armenian Federation Andranik Hakobyan took part in the joint press conference with the representatives of the international federation.

“The European Championship will be organized in diverse age groups. We have managed to organize a tournament in Armenia with the assistance of the Ministry of Sport, the Armenian National Olympic Committee and the Yerevan Municipality.

About 700 athletes from 28 countries will attend the championship. Azerbaijan refused to participate in the European Championships and urged Turkey to do the same. However, one of Turkish teams expressed willingness to join the tournament and will arrive in Armenia on April 6,” Andranik Hakobyan noted.
