Last couple of years nations as Poland, Hungary and recently Lithuania entered the tournament. More at a regular basis we have seen Sweden, Denmark and Italy – from different organizations and styles! Even so that the level without any doubt increases for each year, will lead us to whom the tournament aims for. Not necessarily the top level of Europe and national team members – don`t get us wrong they are very welcome, but it is a fact that the level will be more in the mid or/and up and coming fighters.
