Athens challenge 2016

Athens Challenge 2016 lasted two days. The first day we have seen some great fights in all the disciplines: Light Contact, Kick Light, Low Kick and Team Fights. In Point Fighting we had the Grand Champion, and Tag team.

The second day all Point Fighting individual categories were on. Everybody enjoyed great atmosphere, like always at the Athens Challenge. There was the extra excitement because this was the first Tournament in the ranking row.

Athens Challenge is done and despite of all the strikes in Greece that have made it impossible for some countries to come, we had 1519 registrations, 14 countries participating and 25 International referees present. It has been a great event.
