WKO New Zealand March Match Fights and Kata Challenge took place Saturday 20 March 2021, in New Zealand’s historic Art Deco capital, Napier.
Eighty competitors competed across Kata and Kumite divisions. A strong contingent of Shinkyokushin players was joined by representatives of other organizations in New Zealand.
Because of Covid-19, this competition was reduced in size to allow play to continue under alert level changes. The event offered players the opportunity to compete and continue their progression in preparation for the opening of international borders and competition.
Training preparations are continuing to enable players to compete in upcoming Australasian championships successfully.
