13th KOI World Cup & Training Camp August 2004

KOI 13 was another huge success. We were very gratified at the turn-out from the membership and were especially pleased that the Asian countries supported us so well and in particular the attendance from the Philippines. We were also pleased to welcome for the first time a Japanese contingent led by Senseis Haseme and Shin Tsukii.

13th KOI Training Camp

Manuel Veguillas and his team at AAK Fitness Systems in Mandaluyong City deserve our congratulations on a tremendous effort. We expected no less from Manuel and his wife Josefina and all the Organising Committee at AAK Fitness Systems. Well done and thank you all for a memorable KOI 13 2004.

13th World Cup Results
We had a great World Cup; injuries were few and superficial, which goes to show that with proper training, information exchange, and good referees, karate competition can be exciting, challenging and safe. Russia topped the medals table again and the full medal list can be downloaded by clicking here. The competition was a model of good sportmanship and cameraderie among competitors, coaches and officials alike. New friendships were made and old ones renewed. We look forward to KOI 14 in Moscow.
