—The Zambia Martial Arts Association (ZMAA) says all is set for the season opener encounter at the Italian School in Lusaka this weekend.
ZMAA Technical Director, Moodlee Chola, says Karatekas drawn from Lusaka Karate Clubs will be battling it out in Kata and Kumite.
He said the encounter will be perceived as a training session for the Karate Youth Championships slated for March 7, 2015.
He said the season opener encounter will be held simultaneously as Karatekas will also be fighting in Mufulira this weekend.
Chola said the expectation of the association this season is to ensure that more Karatekas are paraded at international championships in order for them to be exposed.
