World Traditional Karate-do Championships and Traditional Karate-do World Children’s Cup, 23-28 October 2018, St. John’s, Canada

The greatest success in the history of their training was achieved by TKFGB athletes taking top places, including gold medals, during this year’s World Championship and World Children’s Cup in Traditional Karate, which took place on 23-28 October 2018, in St. John’s, Canada.

The World Vice-Championship in seniors’ individual kumite was won by Filip Dębowski, who also, together with Jakub Parchanowicz, Tomasz Niściur and Chris Brazier, reached for the bronze medal in the team kumite. After a very balanced duel our kumite team had to acknowledge the supremacy of the highly-disposed Brazil team, former multiple World Champions.

Paweł Kutermankiewicz, Jakub Parchanowicz and Filip Dębowski secured a very good, fourth place in the team kata competition. At the same time our junior competitors also presented their outstanding form during the Children’s World Cup. Here are the complete results:

Kamile Rogelevic (14) – gold in individual kata
Timofej Kabak (12) – gold in individual kata
Timofej Kabak i Ernest Skarzinskij – gold in en-bu
Kamile Zubovaite (11) – silver in individual kata
Alina Rubina i Ernest Skarzinskij – silver in mixed en-bu
Ernest Skarzinskij (12) – silver in individual kata
Alina Rubina, Eden Parker, Kamile Zubovaite – silver in team kata
Eden Parker (12) – bronze in individual kata
Kirils Snikeris (11) – bronze in individual kata
Alina Rubina (11) – bronze in individual kata
Kamile Zubovaite & Timofej Kabak – bronze in mixed en-bu

13 medals: 3 gold, 5 silver and 5 bronze is the ultimate proof that our training is not only a great way to spend free time healthily, but also ambitiously reaches the highest standards in this ancient art of fight and self-defense” – summarizes the performance of team the President of TKFGB, sensei Zbigniew Godzisz, 4 Dan.
Our success is the result of perfect cooperation of a well-coordinated team of people. First of all, our National Squad instructors: Łukasz Radwański – 4 Dan, Zbigniew Godzisz 4 Dan and Andrzej Czyrka – 4 Dan, as well as the entire Federation board and club instructors” – adds Paweł Kutermankiewicz 2 Dan – TKFGB Vice President.

Founded in 2014 by a group of Polish instructors, the TKFGB, currently affiliated to the World Traditional Karate-Do Federation (WTKF), consistently implements its educational and training plans based on methodological practice as well as exchange and engaging the best instructors in the world. Properly used experience, as well as heavy, all-year-round work, have brought effects that others could only dream about.

This year’s success, however great, cannot overshadow the other aspects of the event. First of all, it was a great adventure – a long journey to the most historic places in North America (St. John’s, Niagara Falls). Both children and adults have spent this week in the unique circumstances of exotic and historical North America, and the local culture, hospitality and kindness and the love of good fun will be well remembered by all participants of this historic expedition.
