Poster for the Oceania Karate Championships 2018

The 19th Oceania Karate Championships are being held in Auckland, New Zealand. The tournament will encompasse two events, the Oceania Championships, and the Oceania Cup. They will take place on Friday 18th to Sunday 20th May 2018.

The Oceania Championships
The Oceania Championships is the continental championships for the Oceania Region. The tournament is recognized and supported by the World Karate Federation. The number of competitors is limited to 2 per division. The competition categories are identical to those of Senior World Championships and the Cadet, Junior and U21 World Championships. The WKF competition Rules will be applied.


The Oceania Cup
The Oceania Cup is an open event for competitors aged 10 to 13 as at the date of the tournament. It is being held for the continuing development of our younger athletes and reflects the events being held by WKF at events such as the annual World Youth Camp in Umag, Croatia. There is no limit to the number of competitors from each country. Only that each competitor must be a member of their national federation. The competition categories are identical to those of the World Youth Cup. WKF competition rules will be applied.

**Update -
The Veteran’s categories have been added to the Oceania Cup to reflect the diversity and genderequality values of OKF and WKF Karate. The addition of Veterans categories at Oceania Cup levelprovides an appropriate international pathway for Oceania athletes to prepare for the introductionof Karate to the World Masters Games program in Japan in 2021.
