My name is Eliya Israilov and I am from Toronto, ON, Canada. I have been competing at a professional level in Karate for the last 5 years. As a member of the Canadian National team, my greatest achievement has been receiving the Karate Ontario Summit Hall of Fame in 2020 and Elite tournament 5x Gold Medals. As well as receiving my 1st Dan Black Belt.
I started Karate when I was 5 years old because I have always been attracted to combat sports ever since I was young. Growing up in a big family, I have been taught self-discipline and respect. Karate not only grew me as an athlete but matured me into a stronger individual. Along the way, I won 5x Gold every year, 3 years in a row at Elite tournaments which allowed me to arrive where I am today.
This year, my goal is to win the WKF Youth League Championship in Spain. To achieve that goal, I am ready to work hard and train harder to make sure I get on that podium.
With the help of my coaches, my friends, and my family, I know I will be prepared, but I can't reach the top without your support. Your donations will go towards the cost of plane tickets, hotels, registration fees, and new equipment.
Any contribution, big or small, is one step closer to my goal. I greatly appreciate you being a part of my journey!
