Lithuanian kyokushin karate summer camp finished. Yesterday was the last day – last and most important for those who tried to climb one step higher in karate path.

Windy and rainy morning during technique part, cloudy and cold during kumite part. Some really hard work and we have few karatekas to be proud of πŸ™‚ For sure congratulations to everyone. However, the biggest ones go to my colleagues and friends who will be called Sensei now – Jonas Eimontas and Andrius Miseckas. Our Lteam members for many years who worked hard and proved that they deserve 3rd dan not only during the exam. They are dedicated members of kyokushin karate community for very long time.

I must mention 5 other names who passed exam for 2nd dan – Magdalena Gustaityte, Darius Daugela, Gintare Mikalajunaite, Kristina Basova and Rima Lisinskaite! And one quite impressive number – 28 new shodan owners. Wow! I guess this proves what a huge organisation we do have πŸ™‚

Now? Few weeks of summer left and new challenges are coming πŸ™‚

Last fight for 3rd dan:
