First day of competition was reserved for tatami disciplines on 8 fighting areas: Point fighting and Light contact, and also Team competition and Grand Champion categories. On the second day we had ring disciplines on two rings, one in Full contact, and the second one in Low kick, while at the same time on two tatamis there was Kick light contact.

Despite the fact that weather conditions were really horrible with heavy snow and huge traffic problems, promoter of the event, Mr. Zoran Cicvara, secretary general of Croatian kickboxing federation, faced only small number of cancellations, which was almost incredible, because many local and some main roads were closed for traffic.
