KOI Karate World Cup

Malaysian Karate exponents once again returned home with a fine performance in KOI World Cup held in Italy earlier this month. Malaysia won a record 5 Gold medals (3 from kumite and 2 from kata). R.Puvaneswaran showed early promise of his coaching ability by guiding a string of young National athletes (Saharuddin, Mohd Hatta and Jeyaseelan) to clinch the coveted men's Team Kumite Gold by beating the Netherlands.
When contacted, Arivalagan (National Karate Head Coach) conveyed his satisfaction on the overall performance of the team and confirmed the ever growing influence of our exponents in European Circuits; and having achieved this without the likes of Asian Champions Lim Yoke Wai, G.Yamini and Vasantha Marial adds more weight to our preparation in clinching the much eluded Gold medal in upcoming World Karate Federation Championship.
RedScience hereby wishes our National Karate Exponents 'Best of Luck' for the upcoming World Karate Championships in Japan.
"Let the spirit in you burn for all to see"
