A team of athletes of Yoshukan Dojo has travelled to Izmir Turkey, to participate in the Shito ryu Karate do Seminar & Children Open Karate Championship, conducted by the Turkish Karate Federation in April 30 and May 1-2, 2010.
Sensei Con Kassis instructed the Karate seminar and was also guest of honour as a Chairman of W.K.F. Refereeing Commission, in the Championship.
The Hellenic team was consisted of athletes Chondrorizos Stamatis, Tsimila Paraskevi, Psihogios Christos, Anagnostatou Stefania, Zafiriou Andreas assistant coach and chief coach and leader Sensei George Pelekis.
The experience has been quite valuable for the participants and very satisfying for their coach since they returned in their home town with medals in their luggage.
Especially, the athlete Stamatis Chondrorizos won the 3rd place in Kumite, in quite an impressive performance, and Stefania Anagnostatou won the 3rd place in Kata, while a very good impression was given by the other two athletes.
It is not the first time that a group of athletes belonging to Yoshukan Dojo has travelled beyong the borders of their country to participate in such events and it surely won't be the last.
