Message from EKO President and WKO Vice-president Visit to Hungary, Szólnòk Cup, sept 3.

The ‘tournament and training season’ started for many clubs after the holidays. Probably everybody is well rested, because a lot of positive things are going on….

On sept. 3, I was invited to the International European Szolnok Cup by our reknown shihan Fúrko Kálman. I arrived two days before, to have some meetings together with shihan Arpad Kalmar and several people, like generals, dignitaries and lawyers. Shihan Kalmar, a sports scientist, is the motor behind the Dream Cup World, the European version of the immensely successful Dream Cup in Japan.

This year's Branko Bošnjak Memorial is 21st in a row and is held in memory of a member of Karate Club "Mladost" Samobor who lost his life in defense of Croatian sovereignty, Branko Bošnjak. The competition has gone a huge transformation, from the first memorial that was held in 1995. in which it occurred only 16 competitors in a single, absolute category, to the later editions with 80-90-100 contestants in weight categories. The mere fact that tournament tradition is 21 years old and maybe the oldest tournament in Europe is spooking for itself.

Come and be part of this great event.
