5-6.   Joost v. Bruggen (blue) in a hot Kumite match.
5-7.   From left to right: Sensei Nobuaki Konno (Genseiryu Netherlands, co-organiser of the Tournament), Sensei Chiba (9th Dan Goju-Ryu, co-organiser of the Tournament, Sensei Rob Zwartjes (founder Wado Ryu Netherlands), Ludwig Kotzebue oud-wereldkampioen Karate (Wado Ryu) and Sensei Wim Keijl (co-organiser of the Tournament).

By the way, a lot of people thought that the black guy really was Ernesto Hoost (a Dutch K1 kickboxer). Well, the resemblance is indeed remarkable...
5-8.   Later on that day, we were honoured by a visit of the Judo legend Anton Geesink, the first non-Japanese to win a world championship in Judo, winner of Olympic Gold in Tokyo (1964) and more than once Dutch, European and World Champion Judo. He is the only still living holder of the 10th Dan in Judo. Anton Geesink is a member of the board of the Dutch National Olympic Committee, and a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
5-9.   Of course with such a legend 'in the house', everybody wants to get a picture of themselves, together with the famous Anton Geesink.
5-10.   Yep, that's me, the webmaster! God, do I look small compared to Anton Geesink...
5-11.   Talking about... Karate, of course!
5-12.   Getting kicked on the head a lot makes you do weird things... ;-)
5-13.   Group picture of (most of) the participants of the KLM Karateclub Amstelveen and Anna Paulowna.
