Next Friday 24th March at 12 noon, the Guardian Girls Global Karate Project will be presented at the Residence of the Japanese Ambassador, Nakamae Takahiro (Calle Hontanares, 8). This project will be presented together with the president of the World Karate Federation, Antonio Espinós; the president of the Royal Spanish Karate Federation, Antonio Moreno, authorities from the United Nations Population Fund and the Koyamada International Foundation.
This initiative, created by UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, the Koyamada International Foundation (KIF) and the World Karate Federation (WKF), seeks to promote gender equality and empower women and girls to better face all forms of gender-based violence through Karate training. The project will be presented in Spain on the occasion of the celebration in Guadalajara of the European Karate Championships from today until 26 March.
The events of the Guardian Girls Global Karate project will continue on Saturday 25 March with a women’s self-defence seminar and a demonstration to stage the social contribution of Karate in the fight against gender violence in Guadalajara. These activities will take place during the finals of the EKF Senior Championships and will be broadcast live on TV stations around the world and on the WKF YouTube channel.
