The XI Summer Camp IFK Kyokushin Uruguay took place on March 10-13, 2022.
As in previous years, Dojos from different cities of our organization gathered to celebrate being able to train in person together. Training sessions started before sunrise and continued throughout the day, with additional sessions at night. Different scenarios, including the beach, tatami, grass, and a special one surrounding a campfire at night, made this a unique experience.
This year we had participants from Montevideo, Mercedes, Dolores, Salto, Marindia and San Carlos. In addition to the 10 sessions, special training and meetings were held for instructors and advanced kyus.
Exams for KYU grades and DAN grades were held, with 3 of our colleagues successfully earning their 1st DAN.
Like every Summer Camp, this one left us with unique memories that will be treasured for years to come, and anecdotes that we will share over time!
On behalf of everyone, I want to thank each of the participants for their time, commitment and dedication; and above all for the positive energy at all times.
Families are also to be thanked for their continued support, as well as the instructors for their dedication and commitment.
We will see each other in 2023 for our XII Summer Camp!
