What is the Karate Retreat?

The Karate Retreat is a week among like-minded people (focus on karateka) with two intensive karate training sessions per day (except the arrival and departure day) under the guidance of 7th Dan Karateka Fiore Tartaglia.

A combination of karate training, coaching and vacation with joint activities, meals, mutual exchange and pure relaxation.

For this purpose, a very special location was chosen in Sardinia - a private villa, exclusively reserved for the karate retreat participants and their companions, which offers space for about 20 guests with a total of 10 bedrooms.

True to the motto: KARATE. EAT. SLEEP. REPEAT.

Outside of the karate program, there will be plenty of time to enjoy the benefits of this special villa and the island, with its indescribably beautiful nature.

The Karate Retreat will be held in German, but of course every Karateka is welcome and if needed, there will be an English and Italian translation.

Of course, Non-Karateka are also welcome to accompany you - there will be plenty of opportunities to spend the time there.
