We buit a team of black belts and we won gold again.
In sparring, we had less competitors, but gold medals were gained by Tereza Štekerová, Egor Popov and Jirka Huml. In special techniques, Tereza štekerová won gold by jumping nomination technique and Jirka Huml won by jumping over Pavel Zavadil. One more gold was added by Tereza Štekerová again in junior female power breaking.

But overall it was good experience for our competitors and familiarization with different organisation of competition.
At the end, most successful indiwiduals were awarded – Jiří Huml (senior male), Tereza Žilinská (senior female) and Tereza Štekerová (junior female).
