These competitions have been organized by the www.sportdata.org platform and sponsored by two major sports equipment brands.In the aforementioned online events a maximum of 32 participants per category and different age group are allowed, in the kata and kumite modalities (only techniques, without a real opponent).
The components have a day to record their best kata, or their best kumite technique moves.
The recording must be uploaded to the online platform, where a series of judgesThey will only have one day to evaluate the videos and put the grade on them, which allows them to go through rounds until they reach the final.The coach of the Eagles Karate Club highlighted that "the interesting thing about the championship, apart from re-motivating young people in the competition (due to the break due to the problems of the COVIC-19), is being able to fight with competitors of all levels , and from all over the world.
