За два дня до старта международного турнира Spanish Open 2020 по киокушинкай, из-за распространения Коронавирусной инфекции и введенного в Испании карантина, соревнования были отменены.
Некоторые команды, в том числе и российские бойцы уже прибыли в Испанию.
Организатор турнира шихан Даниель Лоренто поблагодарил всех поддержавших его турнир.
Dear Shihans, Senseis, Senpais, fighters and families
Until today, March 11 2020, I worked with my team of OYAMAS KARATE to realize, like every year the SPANISH OPEN KARATE CHAMPIONSHIP 2020.
With enthusiasm and determination in order to get together great persons, great karatekas from all over the countries of our organization IKO. Without any doubt our family.
Unforunately Spanish autorities, just a few hours ago, decided act against CODV-19 propagation, forbidding any sport events in Spain.
I really hope that everybody will understand, specially the fighters, they are the beating heart of Sosai MAS OYAMAS.
I promise to keep working with the same enthusiasm and energy, tipically mine, in order to realice a new edition of SPANISH OPEN KARATE CHAMPIONSHIP, once everything will be back to normal.
