The year 2010 our Union FCS Kali Hellas organized for the very first time, along with the 2nd Mediterranean Gathering, the 1st European Kali Tournament (”Blade & Stick”), under Bladesport terms. It’s worth mentioning that this was the first Kali Tournament ever taken place in Greece. The Bladesport Team is the fighting brunch of FCS Kali, which so far appears only in the Central and Latin America.
So, during the 1st European Bladesport Tournament along with the founder of the FCS Art, Tuhon Ray Dionaldo, we also had the honor to host two of the official Bladesport Tournaments coordinators, Lakan Guro Pipo Lopez and Manong Rich Verdejo and the Fcs kali Israel representative Manong Yaron Samuel Brill .
The American Bladesport directors taught daily the Greek representatives on referee issues, the week before the Tournament and seminars took place. This way we made sure that there was a descent referee corps, besides the main referees.
We would like to thank all the participants and our Fcs Friends-Representatives (Germany-Switzerland-Spain,Israel) for their support. Especially, our 3 main guests Instructors for their help, their presence and their teaching for almost two weeks.
