NKKO SUMMER CAMP NORWAY 2018
2018-08-09

From Wednesday 27th of June to Sunday the 1st of July 2018 the Norwegian Kyokushin Karate Org (NKKO) hosted their annual summer camp.

More than180 students joined the camp to train with world class instructors from Spain and Norway. We were very happy to meet and train with our friends from Shinkyokushin, Makotokai and several independent dojo´s. This year we also had more than 60 black belts from all over Norway training together. Shihan Antonio Pinero 9th dan and President of KWF was the main instructor, together with Shihan Javier Lezkano, Shihan Geir Havreberg, Shihan Tom Soelve Erga and Sensei Pablo Estensoro.

We had different classes in basic, kata, fighting, self defense and special class for dan candidates. The camp motto was “Back To Basic” and our instructors focused on our Kyokushin roots. The fighting team trained together with the national coach Sensei Odd Kjetil Liland and our guest instructor Sensei Pablo Estensoro. The kata team trained under the guidance of our national kata coach Sensei Roy Svendsen.

Sunday morning the NKKO grading committee together with Shihan Pinero held the dan exam for 12 candidates. It was a hard grading lasting for four hours with basic, kata, strength exercises and 20/30/40 rounds of kumite. This year all our candidates passed their dan exam. This is proof of the excellent job done by our club leaders, instructors and the candidates themselves in preparing for the exam.

All the students fought hard and showed great Kyokushin spirit. Among the higher grades awarded Sensei Johnny Reiestad (former international fighter and former national fighting coach) and Sensei Roy Svendsen (national coach in kata and several times norwegian kata champion) was promoted to 4th dan, both showing excellent techniques and fighting spirit. We are also proud to announce that Sensei Jarle Sundvor passed the exam for 5th dan and it is with great respect we can call him Shihan.

Shihan Jarle showed great fighting spirit and impresses us all with his great performance. This dan exam showed that a dan grade in NKKO must be earned through hard training and Kyokushin spirit, not given like a cheap present. Osu!

KWF NORWAY SUMMER CAMP STRAVANGER 2018
2018-07-18

The KWF Norway Summer Camp 2018 is over. Unfortunately, the days went all too fast.
It was a great camp. On the west coast of Norway at the Stavanger area it is not often, we have 25 degrees outside all week.
We had as usual classes within kihon, combinations, kumite, self-defence, bunkai and Dim Mak. (trigger point fighting). And also some hard physical exercises with Shihan Paul Lorist. And not to forget about the night training.
At a Kyokushin camp food is of vital importance for the participants to be able to do their utmost during the training. We had our own CHEF and he filled really our stomachs!
The summer camp collected about 100 karatekas.
The main instructors were:
Shihan Antonio Pinero - 9 dan, shihan Lars Hogquist - 7 dan, shihan Fernando Perez - 6 dan, shihan Paul Lorist - 5 dan, shihan Magne Kaastad - 5 dan, sensei Hugo Mani - 4 dan
And more instructors as required. The children had three very competent instructors. The children is our future. And some of them might be our new KWF champion.
What also makes a camp excellent is the spirit and atmosphere among the instructors. All instructors always had the smile on their face and the cooperation between the instructors were great.
The camp ended on Saturday with the Dan promotion test. 16 candidates were up for the test but unfortunately, some did not make it that day. Better luck next year.
The camp was only for KWF members.
KWF Norway wishes you a great summer.

Shihan Lars Hogquist.
