A couple of days ago the start list for this years Branko Bošnjak Memorial was released. Once again this sails up to be a very interesting tournament. With ten nations – and that from some, or to be accurate: the strongest nations in Europe. Hungary, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Greece, Sweden, Poland, France, Austria, Spain, and of course the home fighters from Croatia.
A interesting mix of fighters are ready, and as a little extra excitement some of the fighters are competing in a higher weight class than we are use to see them.
The practical use of Karate has and will always be discussed. And this topic will naturally be a case outside, as well as inside the Karate family. In the summer we do often see a lot of festivals and shows, where musicians and bands entertain huge crowds of people. This will be our first stop to collect some exemplars of the practical use of the elements of karate. It is all about finding the summer rhythm..
In 2015, last time the EC was held in Poland, the line up had 150 senior fighters. Now the Shinkyokushin EC have expanded even more, After good growth it has become natural to add more categories, and with that the number of performers has also increased. And keeping it to the European region makes it makes it easy to measure when it comes to growth. The Eastern Europe countries has always been strong, but also others are making significant progress..
During the holidays it might happens that we got some spear time, and what could be better than some old but good fights?! As usual we are not looking for the best knock outs when we choose videos.
It might happen of course, but a really good fight do not necessarily have to end up with one of the fighter laying on the floor… but it could happen! That`s one of the Joker that makes it interesting..
