National Kata Seminar under the auspices of IFK Romania

This weekend, 29.09-01.10.2023, it took place at Tg. Jiu, the National Kata Seminar under the auspices of IFK Romania – the Knockdown Karate Federation organized by the Brandt Dojo Sports Club where 100 athletes participated under the guidance of Shihan Eddy Gabathuler 8 Dan from Switzerland.

It was an internship where we received a lot of information that will help us in preparing the Romanian team for next year’s World Kata Championship in London.

At the end of the Seminar, we were happy with the promotion of Shihan Christian Hirsch 5 Dan and Sensei Ștefan Straut 4 Dan. Thanks to IFK president Shihan David Pickthall, the IFK international board for the promotion and the trust granted!

Thanks to Shihan Eddy Gabathuler 8 Dan for all the support and the National Kata Seminar! Congratulations to the organizers team, to Senpai Marian Brandt, to all the IFK Romania participants, and to Senpai Roxana Tudor with her team WAKU Romania (member of KWU Romania since 2017), as we are delighted to have them with us, Osu!
