NAKU Name Change

šŸŒ

The Namibia Karate Union held its Annual General Meeting on 06 March 2021 and as part of a long standing process initiated by the Sport Commission, has amended its Constitution to align with Sport Commission requirements including a change of name to theĀ Namibia Karate Federation.

At the same AGM we elected our first female President for our sport, Mrs.Ā Marchelle de Jager.Ā  This is a great milestone for our sport as we try to ensure that our sport is inclusive and free of gender bias.Ā  Being perceived by some as a combat sport this can easily create a perception that the sport is not for woman and we hope that under Marchelleā€™s leadership over the next few years, much can be done to change this image.
