IFK Kumite Swiss Championship 2022

On Saturday, November 19th, the IFK Kumite Swiss Championship 2022 took place in Chur. A total of 78 karatekas from 17 dojos took part in the tournament. In the morning and afternoon, the participants started in different categories: Juniors, Novices, and Elite.

Congratulations to all participants on their great achievements!

A big thank you to all participants, referees, helpers, coaches, and spectators for the work they did and the exemplary discipline. Together we were able to bring karatekas from different full-contact karate organizations to the tatami across organizations and thus hold worthy championships while at the same time focusing on Kyokushinkai karate with its values such as respect, fairness, mutual acceptance, and friendship.
