NO BORDERS, NO LIMITS
This year, if you participated in tournament Irish Open 2016, you can proudly say that you were the part of the history.
All expectations came true: the number of entries braked the number of 4000.
In total, 4151 entries covered full two-days program that can’t be seen anywhere in martial sports.
Facilities of the venue and the hotel, unique as they are, gave us the chance to enjoy in tatami fights, ring fights, and performance in musical forms.
With participants of all ages, from beginners to the veterans, there was the program for all tastes. Watching the kids of the early ages, girls and boys, fighting their first tatami fights, some of them crying and some of them celebrating, was very emotional.
Among 32 registered countries and 298 teams, we had the opportunity to watch the best world’s fighters WAKO has nowadays.
This tournament was the occasion where the new on -line registration and scoring system started to be in use in WAKO.
The Competition started March 4th and lasted till March 6th. Charity for the children was the main purpose of this sporting event, for which was collected more than 20 000 Euros and the cheque was handed to social service officials. We had grand finale night on March 5th.
All of us have to be pleased and proud to be a part of this great event.
