It took 2 extra times and the Tameshiwari (breaking test) to know the 12th World Open champion in Kyokushinkai history. Japan's Mikio Ueda dominated Russia's Aleksandr Eremenko in Tokyo on Sunday in the World Open Tournament final. A 12th edition marked by an excellent general level and the ultra-domination of Russians and Japanese (14 out of 16 in top 16).

3 days of fighting in a row, without weight category, without protection, with KO. Yes sir ! This is the Karate-Do tournament ! This is the Kyokushinkai World Open Tournament (IKO) held every 4 years since 1975. 166 warriors and 34 women on the 1st day. 1 survivor on the 3rd day after 8 fights. The one who wins has a crazy mental strength, a hardened steel body, and is able to overcome the pain, in short, he is the strongest. The 12th edition is coming this week (November 22-24 in Tokyo). The legend continues to be written... We tell you about it...

For the first time in history, a Frenchman is among the favorites for the supreme title, awarded every 4 years at the World Open Tournament. The 12th of the name takes place this weekend in Tokyo (November 22-24). Antonio Tusseau has already been there for a week. He has been training hard for 6 months, we could even say for 10 years. 2-times European champion, 2-times winner of the All American Open, the 28-year-old French prodigy has reached maturity. He polished his style without erasing his gentle madness. He took 10 kg to hit harder. He immersed himself in Russia and Japan... What if it was his year ? Time of the ultimate truth (kyokushin) has come !

He was not at 100%. He was first going to New York to get a good ranking thinking of the November World Open Tournament. For the 2nd time in 3 editions, France’s Antonio Tusseau (ACBB) won the All American Open (June 22). In the final, he dominated the # 1 in the ranking, Russia’s Ashot Zarinyan. All the results.
