Viviana Bottaro at the Italian Senior Kata Championships 2012

The FIJLKAM Italian Senior Kata Championships held in Loano (SV), Italy, on 25 March 2012 were a great opportunity to see many top level Italian Karate athletes in action.

And guess what! We had an HD camcorder with us! Are you ready to enjoy this event?

We prepared a dense playlist with many videos from both the male and female categories. Elite athletes like Sara Battaglia, Luca Brancaleon, Viviana Bottaro, Michela Pezzetti, Alfredo Tocco and the young champions Mattia Busato, Michaela Di Desiderio and Alessandro Iodice challenged each other in a competition to the last kata!

And do you know about that Italian rule which imposes to execute a freeform kata (after a regular kata) in the semi-final and final matches? Well, we filmed them too, so that you can enjoy those amazing acrobatic techniques.

Take a look at the following list with the katas in chronological order, see the final ranks and watch the Italian champions during the contest, in HD!
