ESKA Championships History

    The first ESKA championships were held in 1986 in Sunderland, England and have been held every year since.


    European Shotokan Karate-Do Championships took place in San Fernando, Cadiz, Spain from 22th-24th of November 2019.

    A very successful ESKA Championship 2019 was organized by the Asociacion Shotokan Karate-do Traditional Espana.
    Karateka from all over Europe travelled to San Fernando, Spain for the 35th European Shotokan Karate-Do Association (ESKA) Championships.
    With 620 entries from 21 countries, this three-day Tournament lived up to all expectations with ‘world class’ competitors producing Karate performances of the highest technical standard.
    On Friday, the cadets fought for the titles, while the juniors and youths competed on the Saturday. The Senior categories took place on the Sunday with some of the most exciting performances taking place.
    In the medals table, Team Russia achieved a fantastic result with a total of 11 Gold, 8 silver and 7 bronze medals.

    After a very exciting weekend of Shotokan Karate, we are now looking forward to the next ESKA Championships which will be held in Moscow, Russia on 27th, 28th & 29th November, 2020.
