Maitoshi Kachi Trophy was the first important competition in 2023. This was an international karate competition where 5 countries participated: Belgium, Holland, France, Germany and Luxembourg and more than 500 athletes from 58 clubs were registered. We managed to get 2 bronze medals through Pascu Antonia in the U14 kumite category and Marina Elena in the U12 kumite category. Bogdan Diana (5th place), Elena Elsner, Selen Thiago and Ionescu Mihai also had a very good performance, but without a medal this time.
The belt exam is an important goal for any young karateka. As every year, we awarded the related degrees to those who were conscientious and worked for it. For the first time since the establishment of the club, we awarded the best athlete, the criterion being the results from the competitions obtained during the year. Marina Elena was the winner of the trophy in 2022. As usual, Santa Claus was present and rewarded all the club members.
The belt exam was successfully completed for all candidates.
Congratulations to all the parents for their support, congratulations to all the children for their work!
Cup Cupina, a competition where we managed to win in 4 categories, despite the refereeing that left a very weak impression.

Karate Kid 4th edition is the annual event organized by the AMICAL club, which aims to attract children to the discipline of karate.
This year we had a record attendance after which we formed a new group of beginners. The event started with a karate demonstration offered by more experienced students, followed by a dynamic and energetic training, with some of those present and at the end we had free discussions and provided useful information to all present.
Amical Challenge is the competition intended exclusively for members of the AMICAL club. Forced by circumstances and due to the difficult period we are going through, we initiated this project, to give children a new motivation to do karate, but also an extra goal. The tests were adapted to everyone’s age and experience, so that everyone could participate, even if they had no experience in kumite (fight) or kata (imaginary fight). Therefore, 35 children aged between 4 and 11 years participated in the following tests:
Belt TYU – against time
Kimono fold – against time
Application route – against time
This competition was supported by a number of 12 volunteer parents who contributed to the ideal development of the event.
After a year of hard work, many students received the reward for their work. 50 students have passed the belt exam related to their technical level. Thus, the exams for the white, yellow, orange and green belt were successfully passed. Congratulations to all of them for their hard work. Success to all of them in the future!
