EK Karate 2011 May 2011

Russia was the opponent of the Orange ladies. With quick wins the ladies qualified for the next round. In the 2nd round, Belgium waited as an opponent of Ciska, Vanesca, Lydia and Annemiek. The Belgians were no match for the Dutch women's team! The quarter finals were reached convincingly. In the quarterfinals our ladies faced Sweden. The Swedish fighters threw everything into battle, but it was not enough!

The semi-final brought Spain to the mat as an opponent. The Spanish ladies can be found on the podium almost every edition, a formidable opponent. Unfortunately, the Spanish ladies turned out to be just too strong. After this disappointment, the Orange ladies aimed their arrows at the bronze. Croatia came after winning the rematches as an opponent on the tatami. On 3 parties there was a tie on the scoreboard. An extra party ultimately had to be decisive. On 2 minutes did not bring the regular game winner either. The extension was all decisive. The awarding process began convincingly, the initiative was immediately with the Netherlands. This was rewarded with scores and winnings.
For the first time since the European Championships in Paris 1996 a Dutch women's team was back on the podium!

3e Ronde KBN Youth Competition

Dear Members,

Saturday 29 May we will hold the third round of the KBN Youth Competition in Amstelveen. This time kata is on the program again, whereby we will of course do everything we can to divide the participants according to their own level.

During the competition we want to create an atmosphere in which the children can get used to competitions in a relaxed way in a sporty and respectful way. The trainers play an important role in this, referees and parents! Compliments for the previous round, because also in the kumite the matches were disciplined and in a great atmosphere.

Because the competition is mainly a step-up tournament, Prize winners at a NK are excluded from participation. Prize winners kata can participate in a kumite round and vice versa. We also request that you indicate when registering whether a participant has experience at other tournaments or championships, so that we can take this into account in the classification. Participants must be or become a member of the KBN!

If you play wild, sign up quickly via the link below. Registration closes on Monday 24 May.

PLANNED START: 10.30 hour

Exact time per age group will be announced later.

A great day in Alkmaar 7 March 2010

Beste Karateka’s,

If 9.30 hours the first participants for the first round of the KBN Youth Competition arrived in the Dojo of Funakoshi in Alkmaar.

First of all, it was clearly explained that participating is the best part of this competition. Today every karateka came into action at least four times. Winning delivered 20 points on, to lose 10 points. These points are added to the following rounds of the KBN Youth Competition.

With the tension on the faces it was over 10.00 hour gave the starting signal for the Kata competitions. Our club included Neal, Marijn, Frenck, Maarten, Rosella, Yuki, Kimberly, Maxime, Harley, Tyrique, Louay, Assamau’al, Bridget, Melvin, , Roy Lorijn, Kevin, Kris, Phaedra, Jerome, Annabel on the mat.

Afterwards, each participant received a diploma with the points achieved in this first round. Each participant went home with a smile on their face, a very successful day!!!

KBN youth competition in North Holland

Beste Karateka’s,

Hereby the necessary information about the first KBN youth competition in North Holland. Below the information of the organizing association:


A start will soon be made with the KBN youth competition in North Holland. At various locations, rounds of kata / kumite / demos will be held where the participating karatekas can earn points and each participant does multiple matches. With sufficient points, the participants receive a prize. Before the start of the competition, the participating clubs will receive competition regulations.
Initially, only a limited number of clubs in the region will be approached, because we have no insight into the amount of interest in this new initiative. At a later stage, clubs may be added or a second competition between other clubs can be started.
During the competition we want to create an atmosphere in which the children can get used to competitions in a relaxed way in a sporty and respectful way. The trainers play an important role in this, referees and parents!
Because the competition is mainly a step-up tournament, Prize winners at a NK are excluded from participation. Prize winners kata can participate in a kumite round and vice versa. We also request that you indicate when registering whether a participant has experience at other tournaments or championships, so that we can take this into account in the classification. Participants must be a member of the KBN and have a karate passport!
To avoid long waiting times for participants and parents, we ask you to register the participants in time, so that we can send a timetable a week in advance. We also count on one or two referees in karate suit and at least brown belt per club. A referee's license is not necessary.
The first round of kata is held on Sunday 7 March in the dojo of Funakoshi on the Slochterwaard 183 in Alkmaar. Saturday 17 april a kumite round will be held in the gym of Frank v.d. Nieuwendijk in Zaandam and in May we are still looking for a date for a kata round in Amstelveen.
Because we want to see how this initiative works within the region, we are starting with a limited number of clubs. This number can be expanded in the future or there may be a second competition next to it.
The organization sincerely hopes that we will be your club 7 March, so that together we can make a successful initiative for our karate youth.


Starting from youth up to and including 11 year round 10.00 hour

Start youth from 12 year round 12.00 hour.

Stage for Ciska 1 november 2009

Dear members,

Ciska recently went to Austria to fight against the international field of participants. After Finland and Germany, Ciska has also made it to the podium in Austria. This weekend ended with a nice 3rd place.

Again, congratulations on behalf of all karataks of our club.


Finland open and Germany open Karate Championships
2 time in the final for Ciska 14 september 2009

Dear members,

Ciska has again put in great performances in international tournaments in recent weeks. Below is a short report of her achievements.


Silver for Ciska van der Voort at the Open Finnish Karate Championships
On the weekend of 5 September Ciska van der Voort achieved her first international success of the year. In Tampere, Finland, where the women's football team also made a name for itself during the European championships, she came on the mat full of enthusiasm. Through strong footwork with a high rhythm of movement, she managed to put her opponents under pressure from the start. Her opponents could hardly do anything against this and Ciska did not give up a single point. Unfortunately, she was unable to convince the Finnish referees in regular time and extra time in the final. After a 0-0 her Finnish opponent was declared the winner, which resulted in a good 2nd place.


Last Saturday 12 September Ciska van der Voort won the silver medal at the German Open Karate. This tournament belongs to the 4 most heavily occupied karate tournaments in Europe and is an important selection moment for participation in the European Championship 2010. In the preliminary rounds, Ciska had to deal with, among others, the junior world champions of 2007 and the world champion students 2008. With only one score against she entered the final where she suffered a negligence in the final 15 seconds. The remaining time turned out not to be enough to make up for the backlog.
An excellent performance for Ciska who is one of the few to play in different competition systems.

Congratulations on behalf of all karatak's of our club.

Word of thanks from Ciska
Time for a big tournament 14 september 2009

Dear members,

If a Karateka like Ciska wants to participate in a tournament, all available time is invested here at our club. Because of this, it happens that training by other members (black bands assisted by brown ones) be taken over. This makes our club a great club where everyone helps the other to a better performance. Whether this is a tournament or an exam, sometimes you have to invest your time to make the other person perform.

In recent weeks, various members have taken over training courses from Ciska and David. Ciska and David would like to express their gratitude and trust in the appreciation of the other members.

Thank you on behalf of Ciska and David

2e Place for Lars Jager
NK Karate 28 november 2008

Last weekend, the Annual Youth Championships took place in Zoetermeer. Arrived for our Club 5 people in action of which Lars Jager managed to secure a podium place on the part Kata (mock fight)12/13 year olds. For Lars, who ended up on stage more often, this was the first podium place at a NK. In the component Kata it comes down to the good execution of combinations whereby one clearly shows that one understands the application of the techniques. In other words in a real fight the techniques shown would be, now presented in a vacuum, should not miss their effect. The Kata shown is by 3 of 5 referees judged where one in a knock out system is the better of them 2 players choose. Lars was unanimously chosen by all referees in all rounds. In the final Lars unfortunately had to recognize his superiority in his opponent who showed a more famous kata and who showed more expression in the performance of his Kata.
Because we do not specialize in the subject of Kata, it is an extra good performance for Lars Jager, who is also good in hand-to-hand combat. Our club not only trains Kata but with us the total Karate Package is discussed with sufficient attention to safety.

Congratulations on behalf of all karatekas of our club !!!!!


3e Place for Ruben
NK Cadets and Juniors 19 October 2008

Genseikan Successful in Japan
Champions are back home 12 augustus 2008

After a flight of more than 11 hour the participants of the Osaka Cup and Genseiryu Karate World Championship returned to Schiphol yesterday. And participation in Japan turned out to be not without merit. Met 8 medals in the pocket, the two championships were successfully concluded.

The journey
On 30 July David Kijzer left, Melanie, Mike, Ruben, Femke, René, Gregory, Diana and Henk, and David Roovers to Osaka. A few days earlier, Ciska left for Yuki and his parents who are already in Japan. After getting used to the high temperatures and the time difference, the first tournament was just around the corner.

On 2 The Osaka Cup took place in August. In a beautiful sports facility in Japan's second city, teams from Australia and Japan came to compete for the medals. Both Kata and Kumite were on the program. During the kata competitions, the ladies managed to perform very well. The best result is a Dutch final in the kata part. In the end, first place went to Ciska and Femke became second.

And with this great result, the kumite part was started. Here it was unfortunately only Ciska who managed to reach the final. Mike managed to win his first but unfortunately lost his 2nd match because he got a high kick in the last second. Ciska managed to win her preliminary round matches sublime where she only 1 counterpoint and already after her first match 15 seconds with an ippon score. In a thrilling final, Ciska narrowly beat the last Japanese opponent with 4:3. The hard-fought final was an excellent advertisement for modern karate with beautiful techniques and sharp counters from both sides. Ciska who took the lead with 1 point then had to 3 points of the Japanese tolerate with the referees clearly leaving the home advantage to the Japanese. After a 3-1 stand in the last 30 seconds Ciska managed to score with a high attacking punch (1 punt) and a spiral staircase (2 points) to the belly of the Japanese after which the stand on 4:3 came. In the latter 10 seconds she was no longer in trouble and the 2nd gold was her reward for a year of hard training. The Japanese are well prepared for these matches and only their best fighters, selected during selection matches in Japan were allowed to participate in this top tournament. For some it was mainly a good experience and some were just unlucky to have drawn against the eventual finalists so they did not get a chance to get started.

On 3 August the participants left for Tokyo to participate in the first Genseiryu karate World Championship. In town with 14 million inhabitants a solid preparation for the tournament was started. A total of three training sessions were planned to put the finishing touches on the i. The dojo that was made available by Saitama University Karate Club was under harsh conditions (high temperature) trained in preparation for the tournament.

On 9 August came the day when a Genseiryu Style tournament was held for the first time. Also at this tournament, karatekas traveled from many countries in the world to use their best techniques and win prizes. Our club proved to be very successful here too. Melanie was able to present herself well and received a bronze medal. In the kata for teams, the ladies surprisingly managed to take second place by running beautiful katas. The success factor was used again in the kumite part. With very exciting matches Mike and Ciska managed to get through to the finals. Mike met a very strong opponent who took first place right in front of him, however, a great second place remained for Mike. Ciska proved too strong for her opponent and won her third gold medal 1 week time.

With these great performances our club has received a lot of appreciation from the Japanese organizers, and has set a great example for all members of our club. If you train hard and have faith in yourself, you can also achieve great performance at top level.

Tire exam December 2007
Results 21 december 2007
The annual tire exams were held just before the Christmas holidays. At two locations of our club the karateka’s again showed how far they have progressed. Below the results. The first location was Uithoorn / Amstelveen.
Tuesday 7 december 2007 then the time had come. The children have trained hard for a year under the guidance of David Roovers. And now… there was no escape. Exam. For some, something they have done before. Others had to for the first time. But one thing was certain, it was exciting for everyone. While the children were preparing, were the exam table, for the examiners, and quickly placed the benches in the right places in the hall. All spectators could then take a seat on the benches.
The children were asked to line up and greet the examiners. Then the warming-up followed in the back of the hall. The children who would not take an exam also participated. Then the exam candidates were divided into two groups and the next set of techniques were to be shown in the first part of the exam. From Kiba-Dachi with Tsuki to Mea-Geri everything was covered

The second part consisted of showing the Kata’s Gensei Shodan and Shihoo Uke Tsuki Geri. Here too, everyone showed the best of themselves.

The third and last part consisted of Tang gan, the shoulder tapping of the opponent without being hit.

Between the different parts of the exam, Kata demonstrations were given by the yellow and orange belt carriers from Amstelveen. A very good show, something that should be emphasized. And of course something to work towards.

(this report is a contribution by Patrick Smit. Thank you very much Patrick).

NK Cadets
Mayla in top shape 16 december 2007
During the Dutch Karate Championships in Apeldoorn, Mayla achieved 3rd place in the Kumite section. David Keijzer unfortunately missed the tournament due to an unnecessary injury. Femke ran her Kata very strongly but unfortunately had a balance disruption so that the referees could easily choose her opponent.. Willem did it very well, but because he could not control his nerves, he could not put the usual power and fighting spirit in his kata. Unfortunately he lost.

Mayla congratulations.

NK Youth
Good performances 11 november 2007
Dennis Geerlings achieved third place at the NK for Youth at the 14/15 year olds, Maxime Inden was among the girls 8/9 year 3rd place. Michelle Lambeck girls 10/11 year signed for 2nd place. Ruben de Beus played an extra time in his match, but unfortunately he lost despite having fought very well. Harley unfortunately slipped so he just missed the final and then the same happened so that 3rd place could not be taken.

Congratulations to everyone on achieving this top performance.

Karateka of the season Jan-Jul 2007
Melanie 18 July 2007
We did not have to think about it for long. Who has performed better last season and developed himself better than….. Fighting back at such a young age to achieve an even higher level than before, and teach a group of karatekas who are often even older than you. Then you must have something in you, then you stand for your sport and for the club. And, that is why you are karateka of the January-July season 2007. The unanimous choice for karateka of the season was made by sensei Konno, David, and Ciska.

Melanie, Congratulations! You are a great example to others.
