Experts to host “Women and Karate” free morning 

The Autonomous Sports Organisation of La Laguna council is organising a day under the title “Women and Karate” which will take place on November 23rd at the Pabellón Islas Canarias de Finca España.

This is a free activity that will be taught by experts in self-defence and will take place between 10am and noon.
Those interested can register through the email federacion@fckarate.net or by phone by calling 922 670 130. The deadline to do so is November 20th.
Idaira Afonso, councillor for sports of Aguere, said: “This day is part of the strategic axes of the policy that we are implementing in the municipality, focusing our actions on the attention to diversity, feminism and equality.”
The Canarian Federation of Karate collaborates in the organisation, whose president, Pepe Pérez, explains that “the activity will be directed by Yaiza Díaz, who is a fourth in the black belt.”
 “This day has been proposed as an introduction to karate, while teaching in self-defence. The warm up will be done with a kind of zumba. I encourage any woman to sign up, whether she is regularly related to sports or not, and of any age, ”says Sr. Pérez.
 “The idea is that participants have fun playing sports. For a long time in the Federation we have been detecting a great interest in this type of meetings, hence our commitment to carry out one in La Laguna.”
 The Canary Island Karate Federation will also provide a tatami of 200 square metres to carry out the activity.
