I was born on March 20th, 1988 in Oświęcim, Poland. I started my figure skating carrer in 1995 when I was 7. My mom wanted my brother learn how to skate. We all went together. The lifelong experience never stoped since then. I am a 6-time Polish National Champion. 5 of the titles were with my skating partner Krystyna Klimczak. Togheter we competed at three ISU World Junior Championships, one ISU European Championships and one ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final. I must say that during my carrer I had a pleasure working with World's best figure skating coaches: Iwona Mydlarz-Chruścińska, Sarkis Tewanian, Nina Mozer, Richard Gauthier, Stanislav Leonovich and Andrey Bushkov. Their best skaters include Olympic, World and European Champions.
I retired from competitive skating in 2013 and it was natural for me to become a coach. I wanted to share my experience with the young adepts of skating. I started this route in June 2010 in USA at famous Ice Castle by leading numerous classes during their summer camp. I liked it, and the kids liked it even more. After a promising start I moved to Bangkok, Thailand, where I had a chance to start my first skating project by myself. After over a year, my name spreaded over Asia and I was introduced to Jakarta, Indonesia for a 3 months period as a guest coach.
After almost 5 years of travelling outside Europe I decided I want to come back to my home continent. In August 2015 I took a Head Coach position at IF Castor Figure Skating Club in Östersund, Sweden.

Based on his student's achievements, attendance and class participation, I'd rate his coaching skills as exceptional.
Mr. Karweta has a number of strenghts to offer an employer. He is always interested in helping others and is very passionate to the sport of figure skating. Thanks to Mr. Karweta, our skaters have had a great chance to improve their skating. He definitely has a big knowledge in sport.
