Ondřej Vrábel, 12.12.2005 – 7th Christmas youth championship held in České Budějovice this Saturday. To traditional contest of kids and juniors, also senior competitions were added. In spite of fact that it was first time, when seniors had opportunity to compete here, there were lot of them. The most spectacular matches were sparring up to 80 kilos with Jan „Mrak“ Mraček and male seniors black belt patterns, where Jan Chaloupka (two times European champion) and Rostislav Kaňka (his instructor).
More than 200 competitors from 16 taekwon-do schools (Czech Republic and Slovenia) took part.
Sonkal gave up the chance to fight here this year, but you can smell the atmosphere of competition from more than 300 pictures.
