Summer-camp Zakopane, Poland 2018

The Polish Federation Karate Shinkyokushinkai held their annual summer camp, 29/8 – 1/9, Zakopane. Highly regarded instructors from Canada and Japan, respectively. And not to forget Poland’s own top line of instructors. Andre Gilbert Shihan, Canada and Kenta Mori, Japan – just the two names gives Karatekas a good reason to join in!

The Polish federation are well known for their quality, their capacity to organize, develop in the name of Kyokushin Karate, to have top Karatekas in every setting. As mention guest instructors at the top level, but Poland with Shihan’s and Sensei’s as Remigiusz Karpiński, Eugeniusz Dadzibug, Marek Krejpcio, Mariusz Mazur, Jacek Lamot, Wojciech Radziewicz, Paweł Orysiak – well, this gives us an idea of the level of the camp.

Shihan André Gilbert, 8th Dan, Canada, a living legend and a real Kyokushin pioneer.

Being central in North America,Canada, building, and spreading Kyokushin Karate for a lifetime. If we are not mistaken, it is (this year) 50 year since André Gilbert Shihan was awarded Shodan, his black belt…!

Sensei Kenta Mori, 3rd Dan, Japan. One of Japan’s many good fighters, being All Japan Open Champion in weight categories, and top three in the All Japan Open weight holding seminars around the world – Kenta Mori Sensei will always be a top pick on the instructor line.

The Summer-camp did as usually cover all aspect of Shinkyokushin Fullcontact Karate, Kata, Basic and Kumite as one are use to – and of course one could test oneself at the graduate exam. In this matter some of the profiled fighters from Poland did so, and that’s a great achievement.
