Fighters of The Caribbean, may 10th 2014 in Emmastad, was for a big part a success for Kamakura Gym Curacao. Sito Maria won a tremendous and hard fight against Aruba where his stamina dominated the whole fight. The Curacao-an public had the pleasure to watch one of the best fights of the evening. Thierry Goeloe in his fight started very well - snapping low kicks, hard punches and anticipating moves on his Aruban opponent. Though the fight had just started , after a few blows of Goeloe it was clear that his opponent did not have the energy and confidence to hold on much longer. Unfortunately after an unintended kick in the groin of Aruba by Goeloe, Aruba decided after 5 minutes break NOT to continue with the fight. According to Kamakura and the majority of the public an unwanted situation and we regret the decision of the officials of this match. Though we had the confidence Thierry Goeloe would have ended the fight quickly, he will have a new chance during Dominance in August on Curacao.

It was clear to the public and fighters that Kamakura stands for quality,hard and effective fighting.
We are proud to see this process (of progress). Great work guys! Kamakura also wants to thank sensei Reno, Milangelo, Frits and all others who were there to support Kamakura! OSU!
