On December 17, a friendly encounter was held in the gym "Ashkhatank" between the teams of Kyokushin Karate of Armenia and Persia. It should be noted that Armenian sportsmen of the Kyokushin Federation won 21 of 24 weight categories. The performances were impressive and technically high. The results once again show that the Kyokushin Karate team of Armenia is one of the strongest in the world. This event again became an experience for all those guys who will fight for the victory at the European Championship, which will be held in Armenia from 7 to 8 April.
