                                           Statement on the subject of Tsunami:

   I used to play football and I used to get a lot of knee injuries. I knew I would need to have a surgery done. After a while I decided to change something in my life and train Tsunami Karate. That was my first step made to start with a new karate style. After six months my knee joints were gone and I felt I am healthy again.

   At the beginning my aim was to be healthy and then to learn about self-defence. I was one of a few people who didn’t want to fight but wanted to be healthy. I think I achieved my purpose – thank to Tsunami I am back to the health.

kicking yoko-geri-kekomi,

Irish Sea – Rocks of Drogheda.


   I would like to say there are no limits when you are training Tsunami. You can’t see all of the aspects of this style or have any borders. Training Tsunami Karate gives you so many opportunities how to develop and improve yourself and then how to use your experience in a real self–defence. You can find new directions and new horizons of your own development. In fact Tsunami Karate is a real art, limited only by sport rules, where the main thing is a real self–defence.

hits but also knee relief after the injury of Bogdan Marcinkowski.
