Although other championships were held in Europe in the same week, we were able to welcome 18 nations in Baia Mare. More than 300 participants went over the scales, together with the multiple and double starts we had over 500 fights.
The best teams were Romania, ahead of France and Austria.
As always, the performance in the ring sport was as expected high. Also in tatami sport there were great Semi contact fights.The strongest discipline was once again kick-light.
Very pleasing was the participation of the many children U13 and youth classes U18.
