More than 1,000 karate fighters came to the Nürburgring last weekend, from 6 to 8 January 2023, for the fourth edition of the "Sen5 Rhein Shiai". Karatekas from 23 nations travelled to the tournament, which was organised by the Mayen "Sen5" club in an "everyone against everyone" competition system.
The focus was on the competitions of the children, youths and adults on 12 fighting areas in the ring°arena located in the ring°boulevard. With training and warm-up areas in the neighbouring Bitburger Event Center, the organiser was able to optimally combine the two locations and offer versatile possibilities. "We are overjoyed with the way the event went and would especially like to thank the Nürburgring for the opportunity to hold our event on site," emphasised the first chairman of the Sen5 Karate Club Christian Grüner. In addition to the indoor locations, the participants also took advantage of the Nürburgring's varied accommodation options - from Motorsport Hotel to Ferienpark managed by Lindner.
The fifth edition of the "Sen5 Rhein Shiai" will take place at the Nürburgring from 05 to 07 January 2024.
