Edition 2018 was allready a great succes, but edition 2019 seems to be even better and more spectaculair. The Local Organizers are busy in the preparation of this edition, and are happy to invite everybody to join the DUO games in Medemblik the Netherlands.
On February 9th and 10th 2019 326 Ju-Jitsu athletes from eleven nations travelled to Norderstedt near Hamburg in Nothern Germany to compete in International Kodokan Open 2019.
They started in the Ju-Jitsu categories Fighting, Ne-Waza and Duo Classic in the age divisions Adults, U21, U18, U16, U14 and U12. The award for the best club won the hosts from Kodokan Norderstedt with nine gold medals followed by Den Edel Gouda NL from the Netherlands and 1. Ju-Jutsu-Verein Bernau from Germany with both six gold medals. The best nation (other than Germany) were the Netherlands, ahead of the athletes from Denmark, Belgium, Austria and Sweden.
There were also competitors from Switzerland, Slovenia, France, Bulgaria and Singapore.
For the first time the International Kodokan Open were held as a "JJEU supported event" and organized in cooperation with the Ju-Jitsu European Union. Many clubs and nations used the tournament in the Moorbehalle Norderstedt to see where they stand with their athletes at the beginning of the competition year.
Many thanks to all athletes and coaches for joining, to the referees, to the medical team and the volunteer helpers.
