The Frazz




John Frazetto is the President of Karate Victoria. He is also a coach on our state kata team. John has been involved with karate since the 1970’s. His 1st sporting love was football (he’s a crazy Geelong fan) but there was something about karate that drew him in. He has been involved in all facets of karate. He was a successful athlete – competing well into his 50’s & is now a state coach & administrator. His passion, determination, zest for life, positive attitude for our sport & more importantly the people involved (athletes, coaches, clubs, referees, parents, volunteers) filters through & is a big reason as to why Karate Victoria have been premiers year in & year out. Karate Victoria is the biggest karate club under the Australian Karate Federation banner & has 300+ athletes aged from 8 through to +45 representing it from many clubs around Victoria. John helps athletes from beginner through to elite accomplish their best, he has helped countless refugee athletes by personally funding them, he is constantly trying to promote aspects of our sport & our athletes. This year, with strong support from the rest of his administrative committee, Karate Victoria hosted the 45th Nationals where over 650 competitors came out fighting for a national title. It was a great event that attracted the most spectators our sport has ever seen at aNational Championships. It has been a big year for karate Victoria. John has had a major impact on making KV financially stable, attract more members than ever before & in supporting & promoting our athletes. John is looking forward to ‘sticking’ around a few more years (we hope!) to help our athletes, coaches, referees, clubs & administrators reach new heights in our sport & see more champions standing on the dias on the international stage. John is also excited that karate has finally been included into the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games & will be helping our athletes, coaches & referees to get there, as much as he can!
