WELCOME AMONG THE WINNERS

Karlovac-Open-4 small

On last February 8-9, 2014, city of Karlovac was the center of European kickboxing. During two days of competition Karlovac hosted 1245 competitors representing 117 clubs from 15 countries. This kickboxing festival was organized under the auspices of Croatian Olympic Committee and was officially opened by Mr. Sinisa Krajač, representative of Croatian Olympic Committee. Among the organizations that have also been sponsors of this great WAKO event were the Ministry of Science and Sport of the Republic of Croatia, Karlovac County, the City of Karlovac and Karlovac sports community. The first day was reserved for the tatami sports where we could see many great fights on eight fighting areas. On the second day there were only ring sports and among more than 90 fights on two rings a lot of them made audience really enjoy in spectacular kickboxing. Large LED screens mounted in the center of the arena were something that could not be seen very often. Traditionally good organization of this event rose even higher popularity of kickboxing in Croatia. The impression is that the quality of the competition has grown B class level, so it is reasonable to consider possibility to place it at higher class level. It is a pity that the weather conditions that have brought unprecedented amounts of snow in this part of Europe, obstruct more teams to participate. Invitation sent out from our host to all to this beautiful city stands for the following year as well.
