A nice extra for those who win at the Open-Dutch

Top-Ten just informed us that they will have vouchers for 10/20/30% discount at their booth at the Open-Dutch for Bronze/Silver/Gold winners. The voucher can also be used for online orders on budoland.de , but note that depending on where you are located there may be a shipping cost involved. We recommend those who want to use the voucher to try to use it at the tournament. That way you get the most out of it.

Thanks Top Ten for providing these!

Weigh-in / Height check?

As some people already asked, yes we will have the option again to do the weigh-in (or height on Saturday evening at the venue. Note that this will only be possible between 16:00 and 19:00. With ~600 participants we are expecting it to be super busy on Sunday morning, so anyone who is capable of doing the weigh-in or height check on Saturday evening, please stop by and avoid the rush on Sunday morning! (Sports venue Fitland Helmond, Scheepsboulevard 2 5705 KZ Helmond, Netherlands)

New design for the Open Dutch medals!

Last year a couple of folks mentioned that they would liked to have seen a bigger change in medal design. The 2017 design was very similar to the 2016 design indeed. So for the 2018 edition of the Open Dutch we had a complete new design developed, which in our opinion looks great. We hope you all agree with us, and we are looking forward to seeing you in less than a month in Helmond! We are ready, are you ready to win one of these new shiny medals? (See below the 2016, 2017 and 2018 medals!)

Do we get a t-shirt again when winning? No, we have something different for you…

Every year we have a special price for the winners in each category of the Open Dutch. Last couple of years we had t-shirts with a special design. This year we decided to do something different. We have worked with our sponsor TopTen to design custom open hand gloves. Every 1st place winner in each category will receive a pair. Not limited to just sparring, but also for patterns and power-break! How about that!?
