There are many disciplines within combat sports and activities but karate is probably the most popular in Barbados. The range is varied and includes boxing, wrestling, judo, kickboxing and Olympic Taekowando. The main reason why Karate is so popular is because its leading exponents are totally dedicated and they have developed the sport across all age groups, including both sexes.
National Coach Peter Warren is a highly qualified 7th Dan and his classes start so young that some of his students are barely out of nappies. Top Karate athletes like Cameron King are exceptional talents and the Barbados local champion lists amongst his many achievements a gold medal in the Kumite (sparring) at both the World Championships and the Caribbean championships, and a silver medal in the Kota.
Sporting Barbados magazine was introduced in 1998 and remains an annual sports tourism publication that extols the virtues of the sporting and leisure activities of Barbados.
It is particularly valuable to prospective visitors as it not only covers the main topics, but it gives a plethora of information about activities, attractions, the island, the people, the culture and just about anything a tourist would want to know before they arrive, or while they are here.
