The Namibia Karate Union (NAKU) recently hosted a referee training course in preparation for the 2019 African Union Sport Council (AUSC) Region 5 karate championships which are set to be hosted in Swakopmund this month.

According to a press statement released by NAKU public relations officer Stefan van der Merwe, the referees’ course and qualifications exams were attended by more than 25 Namibian karateka and instructors from various organisations in Namibia.

“The referees’ course and qualifications exams were presented by Sensei Wikus Oberholtzer, chief referee of the NAKU. Sensei Wikus is currently one of the highest ranked World Karate Federation (WKF) referees in the country and holds an UFAK (Union of African Karate Federations) Rank B qualification in both kata and kumite,” Van der Merwe said.

“The course covered all aspects of WKF kata and kumite refereeing and consisted of both theoretical and practical components. Individuals who passed the course will now be able to judge and referee at the upcoming Region 5 karate championships that take place from 23 to 25 May at the Dome’s Indoor Sports Centre in Swakopmund.”

He added that with this year’s tournament a few weeks away, NAKU is working tirelessly to make sure that the event is a success.

Furthermore, NAKU’s president Cornelius D’Alton urges the community to attend the event and to support its athletes as NAKU intends on making this year’s tournament one of the best in the history of the event.
