KWUCAMP 2021: official start

KWU International Summer Camp is held according to the calendar plan of the Bulgarian Karate Kyokushin Federation (BKKF) for 2021

KWUCAMP – the summer camp with traditions and known by this name officially began with a general meeting of all countries’ representatives and coaches. The program was discussed, some meetings were held and the mood was raised.

The first training session started as usual on the field and sports hall. Only happy faces, but a lot of sweat at every training session in Kamchia. 

The world elite in Kyokushin karate gathered in Kamchia for the 15th  International Summer Camp of the Kyokushin World Union (KWU) and the Professional League for the day in huge attendance.

The 11-time K-1 champions in the heavyweight division Peter Aerts, Semmy Schilt, and Ernesto Hoost made three groups of fighters from more than 10 countries, who are in Kamchia for the camp until the end of the week.

Sensei Zahari Damyanov sweated the group of international Kyokushin athletes.

The event is organized by the International Professional League of KWU and its chairman Shihan Ivo Kamenov, who is also the chairman of the National Combat Sports Association in Bulgaria.

Shihan Kamenov spent time with most of the fighters in training and corrected many of their mistakes. The karateka apparently listened to his advice and praised the quality advice.

“I want to see emotion, that’s the most important thing,” said Semmy Schilt.

And tonight in Kamchia emotion was definitely not lacking.
