On January 26, 2019,over 700 competitors from Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Spain, Canada, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden, Ukraine, Hungary and Poland competed in the 9th edition of the Carpathia Cup in Rzeszów , Poland.Kumite and Kata, all ages and categories, organized at six Tatamis. The tournament has been growing and expanded to one of the bigger tournaments, and this demands hard work and the ability to upgrade the organizing as well.
The championship of Russia among men, women, veterans of kumite and kata 1-2 December 2018, this was the second and final step in the progress of qualify to next year Championship, The 12th World Championship 2019 i Japan. First step was trough the Championship (Open-weight), and now the Championship in weight categories.
One or so week after the European Championship, and we are still amazed by the level and the dedications by all part into the tournament. Numbers of athletes and nations are high, the quality of the fighting or the Kata are without top level. Specially the level of fight, that have been measured up against world athletes from all over the world and across organizations.That this was going to be a very strong EC, there was no doubt, and it was seen early in the process. The number of athletes and not least who was in the line up made this clear.

Et solid EM ble avholdt i helgen og NKO skaffet seg gode erfaringer. Som alltid er det Øst-blokk landene som dominerer, og det er land som Bulgaria, Polen og Litauen som tar pallen. Og apropo Litauen så fikk man et aldri så lite forhold til dem – eller rettere sagt 3 av dem. Nivået var skyhøyt, og som kjent så befinner Shinkyokushin sine utøvere i den absolutte verdenstoppen, og det på kryss av organisasjoner.
Åpenvekt EM skiller seg ut når det kommet til den taktiske delen, og det vil si i fothold til å fighte inn i mot en vekt avgjørelse. Tydelig å se denne gang var også hvordan top 8 var meget bevisste på energiforbruk i innledende runder, og gjorde akkurat det de måtte for å avansere.
European Championship Open Weight – in 1 week!The European Championship Shinkyokushin will take place on 23-24 November 2018, Friday and Saturday, in the city of Budapest, Hungary. The great support of the tournament gives us the hardest line up up to now! Not only in numbers, but also looking at the profiles ho attend – if one manage to reach the podium, it would be a great achievement!
Denne helgen avholes en av de virkelig tyngre turneringene i Europa – Shinkyokushin Open-Weight European Championship. Nivået er skyhøyt, og i årets line up er det pakket med fighters som har tatt titler i alt av organisasjoner og turneringer. Og NKO er mist oppe det hele! Tidsplan LIVE og trekning foreligger..Dette EM er altså åpen vekt for seniorer, samtidig egne klasser for U-21,U-16. Med disse tre klassene er det alikevel over 420 utøvere fordelt på 25 land. Dette gjør sitt til at det er av betydelig størrelse. Antall utøvere er ofte ikke noe målestokk ift størrelse, ettersom det har blitt mer og mer vanlig rundt om, å fylle på med barn helt ned i 8-10 års alderen. Det er det heldigvis ikke behov for i dette tilfelle.
European Championship Open Weight – in two weeks! And as we know the U-21 and U-16 European Championship as well. The European Championship Shinkyokushin will take place on 23-24 November 2018, Friday and Saturday, in the city of Budapest, Hungary. The Open Weight tournament has always been interesting – just for for the fact that it is open weight. The great support of the tournament gives us the hardest line up up to now! Not only in numbers, but also looking at the profiles ho attend – if one manage to reaching the podium, it would be a great achievement!
