Japanese Ambassador’s Karate Cup


The Embassy of Japan in Zambia hosted the fourth Japanese Ambassador’s Karate Cup in the Republic of Zambia in association with the Martial Arts Federation Zambia on 7th and 8th February at the Multipurpose Center of International School of Lusaka.


The event brought together about 100 Karatekas who competed in the Kata, the Semi-Contact and the Full-Contact categories, demonstrating their highly skilled abilities. Those in attendance included Karatekas from Kyokusin-kan, Shouto-kan, Dento-kan, Gouju-ryu and Asiwara-karate.


As a guest of honour, Ms. Agness Musunga, Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Youth and Sport attended the event and delivered an address. Also, H.E. Mr. Kiyoshi Koinuma, Ambassador of Japan to Zambia delivered an address and awarded medals to the finalists.


A Japanese Junior Karateka took part in the tournament for the first time, bringing more excitement. His performance was warmly welcomed by Zambian Karateka, making a great occasion as sport exchanges. Although the number of Karate players is small, over 2,000, but it is still expected to enhance mutual understanding by expanding the relationship between Japan and Zambia through Karate.
