2019 Senior Kumite & Kata Trials

Dear Karateka,
The following dates are set for Senior Kumite trials for the 2019 World Championships.
We would invite everyone who is eligible for selection to participate in squad trials and hopefully be  part of the Irish team going to the Czech republic in July 2019.  We understand that everyone has a busy life and lots of other commitments so to help accommodate trialist we have set out a calendar of events up to April 2019 when the final selection is made.  While every effort has been made to tie down competition dates some of these have not been confirmed by the host clubs/associations so there may be some maneuvering with training, however you will receive plenty of notice for same.  As it is a world championship year we would will be training frequently and your commitment and cooperation is vital for the success of the team.We look forward to welcoming you and working with you in the future and wish you the very best of luck.
Gary Daly (Coach)
Eric McCarthy (Assistant Coach)
