Barneveld Fighting Cup Sunday November 25th 2007

The competition starts! 29 clubs, 247 competitor’s dividend in youth, juniors and seniors did all the items of I.T.F. Taekwon-Do. This was a good test case to see if the organizers were able to put 7 items, Tuls, Sparring, Power, Specials and Pre –Arranged Sparring in a competition which would take place from 12.00 up to max 18.00 hour. But what happened. Four squares ended at 17.15 and de last one at 17.25 hour. A great achievement of the organizers, referees, volunteers, competitors and coaches.

Good matches in Tuls with great competition between the competitors form Slovenia, Poland and Belgium. There was even a mixed male and female 3rd degree and higher group. Sparring was being performed in a friendly atmosphere. Two newspapers send journalist to make a report and councilman Hengel also came and had a look. Councilman Hengel was very important for the realization of this tournament.

Because competition (because of local religious rules) competition could only start at 12.00 o’clock. Before this there was a presentation of Black Belt International, a new concept of Martial Arts instructors uniting each other. About 30 instructor took away there information map.

After the umpire and coach meeting presented by Master Coos van den Heuvel there a very nice buffet. At 11.45 hour we honoured all the present Masters, World, European, European Cup and World Cup winners. At precisely 12.00 o’clock competition started with Power (only 3 competitors allowed in a division) and Special Techniques (also only 3 competitors’). Good jumps and powerful breaks were performed.

At 13.30 o’clock (according to schedule) sparring competition started. With enough referees the matches went fast. At 15.00 hour 3 teams, 2 from the Netherlands and 1 from Belgium performed impressive Pre-Arranged Free Sparring. This was not a competition and all six participants got a trophy.

At the end of the competition all referees and volunteers got presents from our sponsors and we thanked our sponsors for there contribution and visit. Also a thanks to all volunteers, Henny van Zon and Master James Tjin-A-Ton for helping out at the last minutes of offering his mattes to the competition. Very soon the pictures of the competition will be posted.
