1st Battle of Europe - 2020

Update: The link for the 1st Battle of Europe before the lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  

For the 1st time we wish to invite you to our 1st Battle of Europe. This Championship is an invitational Tang Soo Do only tournament. After the successful first three tournaments we hope to make this fourth edition a more successful and memorable event once again. Our tournament is a still growing event with competitors from all over the world. So far we’ve receive much positive feedback from competitors, parents, instructors, Sa Bom Nims and even Kwan Jang Nims. This is heartwarming to us and gives us the drive to keep working to make the 1st Battle of Europe a valued Tang Soo Do tournament where practitioners gather to have fun as well as test their skills. This tournament will be organised once in the four year with a bigger character and with trophies instead of medals. This edition I also celebrate my 30 years of Tang Soo Do training. I hope old friends and new friends come to celebrate this event. 

The 1st Battle of Europe will be held on Saturday 15th of February 2020 in Enschede, the Netherlands. Enschede is the host city for the tournament and it is in the eastern part of the Netherlands, on the border with Germany.
