23.12.2006 – As we found out, we had forgotten to add one photoset which we made during
tournament in Ioannina. First international tournament in accordance with new
rules took place in this small village which lies near to border with
Albania. Regarding this fact Czech national team sent its competitors and
also 2 referees (MUDr. Rostislav Kaňka - V. dan and Ondřej Vrábel - III. dan).
Rules for patterns are just slightly different from old version so we was
much more interested how new rules are going to work in sparring. Greek
competitors were well prepared and they tried to do just 2 punches followed
by kick in combination. We will use new rules from 2007 in Czech Republic to
have enough time to get experiences from international competitions (World
and European championship).
Junior competitions was finished during Saturday, so we used Sunday to visit
seaside and get first sun-tan :-)
