Last thursday, Jukka Holmen and Mira Sjövall along with Master Thierry Meyour headed to Ireland to attend the Irish Open, the World biggest Martial arts event. 3431 athletes from 310 clubs from all over the world.

The purpose of the participation was to assess the level and learn the rules and fighting style, but also get ring time in preparation for the upcoming European Championships.

Even though Jukka and Mira didn’t get medals, the experience was really valuable and they were able to have multiple fights each. Jukka had 4 fights and Mira got 5 fights in total either in Light Contact or Point Fighting.

We would like to thank everyone who supported us:
