INTERNATIONAL KYOKUSHIN SUMMERSCHOOL – 2022, PAPENDAL / NETHERLANDS
2022-07-13
Last weekend, the Dutch Karate Kyokushin Organization organized the Kyokushin Summer Camp at Papendal for the 54th time. The camp is known as physically demanding. Of course all aspects of Kyokushin were practiced in 17 training sessions spread over 4 days. Shihan Antonio Pinero, Shihan Fernando Perez, Shihan Javier Lezkano from Spain and Shihan Jérôme de Timmerman from France were present and provided inspiring lessons.
Each morning and afternoon the training ended with 25 fights. In this way everyone fought at least 150 matches. There were also special trainings such as the night training where the sprinklers for the grass were turned on to stay cool.
15 candidates took part in the grading for a higher belt, from first kyu to 5th dan. This exam was conducted by an international examination committee under the direction of Shihan Piñero. On Saturday it started with a three and a half hour technical and physical exam. On Monday morning was the traditional exam fighting no protection allowed. As always this was a great moment.
The 54th summer camp was a great success. All candidates passed which is a huge exception. Kyokushin in the Netherlands focuses on quality and this is reflected in the quality of our students.
Next year is the 55th Summer Camp at Papendal.. We are already looking forward to it. Put it in your calendar July 7 – 10, 2023.

Звернення Президента KWF Антоніо Піньеро

ВСЕСВІТНЯ ФЕДЕРАЦІЯ КІОКУСИН (KWF) Іспанія, 12 березня 2022

Шановні члени KWF, сіхани, сенсеї, семпаї та всі послідовники кіокусін, прямо зараз світ зіткнувся із трагічною ситуацією. Ніхто не хоче війни в Європі. KWF проти цієї війни, як і решта. Сосай Ояма через кіокусин хотів сприяти миру в усьому світі, утримуючись від світової політики. Ми несемо відповідальність за цю спадщину. Ми робимо це, тренуючись разом, організовуючи міжнародні чемпіонати та пізнаючи кіокусин таким, яким він має бути. Все це обмежується нинішньою війною між Україною та Росією. KWF буде дотримуватися прийнятих міжнародних санкцій. Чемпіонат Європи, який планувалось провести в Україні, переноситься. У червні KWF буде ухвалено рішення про проведення Чемпіонату Європи 2022 року.Ми розуміємо, що це стосується багатьох наших спортсменів кіокусін, і сподіваємося, що ці жахливі події закінчаться якнайшвидше. Насамперед, наші думки з українським народом та всіма, хто стикається з особистими стражданнями підчас цієї війни.
