On Saturday, March 20, 2021, the Western Macroregion Championships and the Inter-Voivodeship Kyokushin Karate Youth Championships were held in Płoty, Poland. It was an event organized by the Sports Club "Polonia" Płoty under the patronage of the Polish Karate Association. It has accumulated about 240 karateka from 27 clubs. IKO World So-Kyokushin were represented by Dojos from Szczecin, Kołobrzeg, Moryń, Chojna, Choszczno, Bydgoszcz. Congratulations for all the fighters, including those who did not make it to the podium, on their fighting spirit and commitment during the competition on the mat during the tournament. Due to the epidemic threat, the organizers had to meet many sanitary requirements, which were imposed by various regulations.
On February 19-21, 2021 in Kołobrzeg there was an instructor internship for brown and black belts who lead keiko in Kyokushin Karate Szczecin, Moryń, Chojna and Kołobrzeg centers. Shihan Andrzej Kłujszo, despite a very busy calendar, found time to share your over 40 years of experience, while pointing out that the most important thing in the whole karate journey is smile and friendship. The great atmosphere during keiko, the open minds of the participants, the rest between training sessions at the SPA and the integration on the Kołobrzeg beach made this event a particularly successful event. Sensei Paweł Falko, thank you for the hospitality, attractions and great time spent in Karatec. It was honorable. Osu !!!
On 30th of January 2021 an International Keiko run by a longtime translator and friend of Sosai Mas Oyama, Shihan Cameron Quinn, was held. Over one hundred karateka from ten countries of the world, very different time zones, including e.g. Australia, Spain, Sweden, Portugal, Canada, Chile, Poland, Japan, Hungary, Great Britain. It was a great karate lesson in a great atmosphere and honorable company. At the end of keiko, participants had the opportunity to talk to shihan Cameron Quinn about his karate path and the second edition of his book "The Budo Karate of Mas Oyama" (budokarate.com), which is currently being published. During the keiko, translation into Polish was provided, which had a significant positive impact on understanding the issues discussed by non English speakers. Thank you all for your presence, commitment and smile. We would like to invite you to the next events soon. OSU !!!
On 12/12/2020, Husaria Szczecin organized the 10th edition of the Polish Open Kyokushin Karate "Kyokushin Challenge 2020" tournament. This year, due to the epidemic situation in the country and the region, the Club Board decided to organize the tournament online. This innovative solution entailed a huge logistical challenge, both for Husaria as the organizer, but also for all participants. Everyone did a great job, making this tournament another unique event. Over 202 players signed up for the tournament. The very good organizational level, great atmosphere and high skils level of the players made the tournament a very interesting sporting event. The Szczecin Husaria, as the tournament organizer, decided to resign from the team's first place. As a result of the above-mentioned decision of the organizer and the sports competition, the team classification was won by the team of Koszalin (1st place), ahead of team of Kołobrzeg (2nd place) and team of Zielona Góra Ochla (3rd place). We congratulate all competitors on their great fighting spirit and great courage. See you at the 11th edition of the Polish Open "Kyokushin Challenge 2021" which will be held on October 16, 2021. We believe that next year we will play the tournament safely in the traditional formula. OSU!!!
