Los entrenadores expertos son capaces de analizar las técnicas del Karate-Do con el fin de modificarlas y realizar los mejoramientos deseados para cada Karateca. El Instructor nuevo muchas veces tiene dificultad para decidir que técnica se debe usar y que modificaciones hay que hacer. La forma más sencilla y más común de solucionar esta dificultad es imitar las técnicas de los campeones actuales. El problema que surge es que muchas veces los Karatekas de alto nivel tienen técnicas diferentes y los Instructores y los Karatekas imitan tanto los aspectos negativos como los aspectos positivos de cada técnica.

Todo el mundo considera actualmente la importancia tan relevante del profesor, de la enseñanza canalizada. Debe ser que el que aprende es, quizá, un elemento más dentro del marco de la ense­ñanza y no un sujeto que protagoniza todo el ámbito del Conocimiento.

Nosotros reconocemos en el aprendiz, en el alumno o profesor (da igual), aquel sujeto capaz de internarse en la aventura del Conocimiento.

Bien es cierto que esa Aventura debe ser dirigida, pero dirigida por alguien capaz de dar respuestas o capaz de proponer situaciones que vayan de acuerdo al nivel evolutivo de quien quiere aprender.

También es cierto que tanto la persona que está al frente de un grupo o bien de sí mismo, como la persona que está iniciando la Aventura del Conocimiento, se ven beneficiados el uno del otro, formando un binomio, que viene caracterizado por la capacidad de cada uno de añadir a su experiencia la frescura que da el compartir y el aprender de cuanto nos rodea.

Headed by EKF and WKF President Antonio Espinós, the plenary session of European Karate’s governing body analysed the upcoming events in the continent and reviewed the progress of the sport in Europe.

EKF and WKF President Antonio Espinós said:

“We have had a very difficult couple of years, but we have managed to give athletes the opportunity to compete. We have been committed to offering them the best conditions to continue their development as athletes and we have continued to organise events despite the complicated situations due to the pandemic.”

“We need to keep on working the way that we have been doing it over the last few years. The EKF is a model federation, as the strength of Karate in Europe shows. However, we should not be satisfied with this progress; we need to improve more and more, we need to continue developing our sport and taking Karate to higher levels as we have done in the last years.”

The event was organised by the Turkish Karate Federation with its president Aslan Abid Uguz in attendance who in his address to the congress hoped for the many representatives of European National Federations participating in the event to enjoy the tournament and the city of Gaziantep.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) formalizes the collaboration of the two entities to implement far-reaching initiatives to use Karate to empower vulnerable sectors of the population, especially girls and young women who have suffered any form of abuse.

The WKF and KIF agree to implement joint development programmes in localized territories and to strengthen initiatives aimed at integrating the practice of Karate in activities to ultimately improve the living conditions of disadvantaged populations.

WKF President Antonio Espinós said:

“The WKF is committed to doing its utmost to use the core principles of Karate to fight discrimination of any kind. In particular, the idiosyncrasy of Karate makes our sport the right tool to help girls and women who have suffered from gender-based violence. As the defence of people in need is one of the main elements of our strategic plan, this agreement with KIF puts us on the right path to contribute to a better world and to further demonstrate the many values and the greatness of Karate. It is also one more indication that Karate is very much in line with the Agenda 2020+5.”
