Open Netherlands Championships 2023

The Open Netherlands Championships of the NKKO in Arnhem organized by Gouken Dojo was a success. 190 participants from 38 dojos from 5 countries, together with 38 referees, ensured a well-run and sporting championship.

Beautiful katas and good fights made it a beautiful Kyokushin day. And they had such a nice audience. Kumite Technology delivered more than expected. All information about the championship was available online in real time. Of course, there are improvement points and wishes, and NKKO will work on that next time. But everything went like a sun.

Gouken Dojo wants to thank everyone for their participation and cooperation in this championship, participants, referees, the public, and certainly also my Goukens who helped organize all of this.
