2011 WTKA World Championship & Martial Marathon will be held in Italy Marina di Carrara the beautiful

location of 2010 edition!!!


Marina di Carrara is located in Tuscany very closed to Pisa, Florence, Genova, Turin, Rome, Bologna and

Milan Airports.


Marina di Carrara is closed to beautiful Pisa, Florence, Lucca and above all "the Cinque Terre" (under the

Patronage of Unesco),they are a kingdom of nature and wild scents maintained as in the past. To visit the

Cinque Terre means to visit five villages suspended between sea and earth, clinging on to cliffs and

surrounded by green hills.


And again Lunigiana a very particular land that keeps intact the evidences of its feudal history and, at the

same time, preserves an unspoilt nature, quite completely free from industrial pollution.


Genova with the famous Acquario di Genova, Europe's largest aquarium is one of Genova's biggest draws

and a must-see for travelers with children.


The structure alone is remarkable, resembling a ship and built alongside a pier in the old harbor.




And Turin with its great history and the world famous Egyptian Museum.


The Museo delle Antichità Egizie is the only museum other than the Cairo Museum that is dedicated solely

to Egyptian art and culture.


Many international scholars, since the decipherer of Egyptian hieroglyphs Jean-François Champollion, who

came to Turin in 1824, spend much time pouring over the collections.


It was Champollion who famously wrote, “The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin”.


Competitions will start officially Thursday 27th October 2011 after the Opening



You might already know that, 2 day prior to the start of the event, Officials Seminars will be held to define the

guidelines for refereeing.


The Opening Ceremony will be more beautiful than the last years.
