Held in Umag, Croatia from 29 June to 5 July, the WKF is the World Governing body for Karate, with over 160 member countries, and is recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The talented trio will come together with their fellow Australian team mates on Tuesday 30 June, for training sessions, and then commence competition from 3 July.
DeBortoli and Noble will each be competing in the Under 14/15 70kg weight division and the Under 14/15 Open weight division, while Hennessy will be competing in the Kumite Male Junior 76kg weight division. Noble competed in the same event in 2013, winning a Silver medal.
