In total, 4151 entries covered full two-days program that can't be seen anywhere in martial sports.

Facilities of the venue and the hotel, unique as they are, gave us the chance to enjoy in tatami fights, ring fights, and performance in musical forms.

With participants of all ages, from beginners to the veterans, there was the program for all tastes. Watching the kids of the early ages, girls and boys, fighting their first tatami fights, some of them crying and some of them celebrating, was very emotional.

Among 32 registered countries and 298 teams, we had the opportunity to watch the best world's fighters WAKO has nowadays.
