Romanian Kyokushin National Championship, Arad 2009


On the 7th of March 2009 the Kyokushin Karate National Championship took place in Arad. 130 participants lined up from all over the country. Our dojo had 11 representatives that managed to achieve very good results: three gold medals, one silver, three bronze medals and qualifications among top 5 or top 8 at different weight categories.

At kata senior women A category Anda Pop managed to come in 3rd, and Paula Pop took the 5th place. A slight increase since the last competition in Hungary. For the next national championship we hope for a higher ranking that will allow us to compete at the European Championships.

At kata senior B category our athletes won several other medals through: Ioana Mureşan and Fabiola Toader(3rd place), Andrei Corăbian(1st place) and Bogdan Ţiţiu(2nd place). (more…)
