The 52nd Itosu-kai National Championships

2019 Itosu-kai National Championships

The 52nd Japan Karatedo Itosu-kai National Karatedo Championships were held in Kure city, Hiroshima on August 24th and 25th.

Itosu-kai did not hold National Championships in 2017 because we held the international championships in Shang Hai, China. Also, we were supposed to have National Championships last year but it was also cancelled for heavy natural disaster which hit Hiroshima area. So, it’s been 3 years to have National championships.

This year, we had about 860 competitors from Japan and some international branches.

Here are some results

Male Kata division (19 -35) Tastunori Saito (Senshinkan dojo) : Gold

Female Kata division (19-35) Momoko Une (Kenshi-kan Yumegaoka dojo): Gold

Male Kumite division (19-35) Shion Kawaguchi (Hannan University): Gold

Female Kumite division (19-35) Hitomi Suzuki (Hannan University): Gold

In team kumite division, Fujita dojo and Hannan University went to the final and Fujita dojo won. They are actually sister dojos.

From oversea branches, two competitors from China also got gold in Kumite divisions.
