The traditional Kumite Weekend was held in Graubünden/Switzerland from Friday to Sunday, 3rd to 5th November 2023. The instructor was Senpai Jonas Rosin, 2nd DAN IFK from Sweden, and a karateka currently IFK World and European Champion.
A total of 93 Karatekas from the IFK Dojos Anglikon, Ilanz, Kriens, Mörschwil, Obwalden, Oftringen, Strengelbach, Wettingen, Wohlen and Chur had registered. Karatekas from the friendly Dojo Mori Karate Dojo Fu Rin Ka Zan, SKK Dojo Ebikon, and Kyokushin-Kan Trimmis and Wädenswil also participated.
The Friday and Sunday training sessions were held at the Dojo in Chur. The three training sessions on Saturday were held in the gym in Felsberg. The focus was on fighting. It was not only about the “how” but also about the “why.” Senpai Jonas knew how to organize engaging, knowledgeable, and varied training sessions.
We thank him for finding his way to Switzerland – ありがとうございました.
