Focus on details in improving your defensive and offensive game was the main topic of the second day of the 16-th International Summer Camp in Kamchiya that is organized by the Bulgarian Karate Kyokushin Federation and the Kyokushin World Union. The only session for today kicked off exactly at 07 AM.
This morning the karatekas were again divided by age in several different groups. The fighters that are above 18-years of age had the hardest task – they had to train on the beach under the sun.
The little ones and the up-and-coming youngsters were practicing their “kata” still, so they can perform better in their upcoming exams for higher ranks. The elder ones practiced how to block punches and kicks more efficiently in partner drills. They also put time into upgrading their mental toughness and resistance when taking punches.
The morning session was once again led by young up-and-coming black belt instructors and “old school” black belts. The representatives of different generations partnered up successfully in their common goal to teach their ways.
Some of the most renowned names among the instructors were Shihan Andzhey Drevnyak, Shihan Asen Asenov, Georgi Doychev, Jan Sokoup, and the world champion from Armenia Artur Arushanyan.
The training session ended just before the beginning of the World Youth Cup of KWU which is broadcasted directly on our website. The afternoon kyokushin practice will be postponed, so each abd everyone can support their teammate in the Mundial.
