It’s time to plan this summer’s summer vacation – and no summer without Kyokushin! Many combine vacation and exercise, and here we have a very good Swedish feature that takes care of both. Once again this event are being organized by Sensei Mikael Andersson, Sweden. The camp are not held in Sweden, but in Croatia, Bol. Three days camp 27-29th June. Jimmie Collin Sempai will alos attend as an instructor – as before!
Recently we all noticed that the Danish Shinkyokushin team entered the Diamond Cup with a very strong team – maybe the strongest we have seen in a long time. But this did not happen over night. If we take a look back, and pick up the trail from the last results of the Danish team, we can clearly see that “something” is going on. It is also been worked out a cooperation agreement between them and Ashihara Denmark, to back each others tournaments and more. Ashihara in Denmark do also have many good Dojo`s, so this will whit out doubt lift the level even higher for all parts!

NKO hadde et solid lag på plass under året Stora Höga Open, som avholdes i Sverige hvert år. Turneringen er midt i blinken for nivå og utbytte med tanke på det man trenger i Norge. Med rett i underkant av 200 påmelde utøvere, og med et kampsystem som kombinerer cup og pool, er utbytte mildt sagt stort! De norske utøverene gikk 3 og fire kamper hver(!) Gg i tillegg til dette vanket det også forlengelser i kampene. Dvs at her fikk man mer kamptid på en dag, enn hva man gjør på et år i Norge. Stevnet er ypperlig som et ungdom/rekrutt stevne, men her tilbud for senior også, både i semi og fullkontakt. Bilder fra Færder web Continue reading

As in the men’s division, unfortunately we could not get as many we wish. World Championships, European Championships, Open tournaments – it`s all there!
Once again a very active year has been completed, and World Tournaments, European tournaments, open`s have been organized, and held all over the world. It is sad to confess that one can not see every tournament!! Some many skilled athletes and competitors with unbelievable hard work. We have tried to pick some of the fights that we will give some extra attention..The first session from men`s divisions. And the point is to pick fight from around the world and tournaments, mostly the biggest one.
Early highlights in 2018: The Diamond Cup, will be held 24th Feb. The tournament have been a strong tournament with top European fighters, Russia and Kazakhstan – top of that: Japan. The question would be naturally to raise, especially with Many World Tournaments this years: can the Diamond Cup attract star fighters also this time?
The 3rd KWU World Championship is coming up, once again held in Russia. As before the setting is very professional, the hype is big and the event is well covered. It is assumed there will be 55 nations, divided among nine men’s classes and six women’s classes. Everything is done for an unforgettable championship…
