|National tournament for the "Black Sea" for juniors seniors Burgas 24.11.2012|
| On 24.11.2012 in the "Mladost" hall in Burgas took place the National "Cherno More" cup tournament in Shinkyokushin karate for juniors. In the competition, which was perfectly organised by the hosting team, took part many of the young talents of the Bulgarian Karate Shinkyokushin Federation, hailing from clubs of the whole country, among them also standing competitors of the Junior National Team.|
SC "Kyokushin" Shumen's competitors, with chairman senpai Stoian Obretenov- IInd dan, fought well, winning a gold and a bronze medal.
| In junior girls in the 55kg category Ivelina Petrova won the title by defeating the bronze medalist from the European championship for kadets Krasimira Mireva of KKC "Kanku-kai" Sofia in the semifinal. It was a very close match and only after regular time and two extensions did the referees rule in favor of our competitor. In the finals Shumen's young hope overcame the much more experienced Denitza Georgieva of KFI "Bushido" Nesebar. Ivelina normally competes in kadets, thus her title was a great accomplisment for Shumen's team. During 2012 the young fighter has grown a lot in her game and deservingly became republican champion in juniors, also winning two first places in National cup tournaments in kadets and juniors and a second place finish in the ROMANIAN OPEN - EUROPEAN CUP in kadets.|
A bronze medal in the 65kg category was won by Osman Osman, who trains under Aidan Ahmed in the branch-club of SC "Kyokushin" in Tzarev Brod in the "St. St Kiril and Methodii" school. In his first match Shumen's karateka overcame Nikolai Georgiev from ASKC "Trakia" Plovdiv, but in the semifinal he was paired up with the european champion Andrei Rusev from KFI "Bushido" Nesebar and even thought our fighter lost by decision, he fought very well showing great fighting spirit and mental stability. In the third place match Osman was again the better fighter and deservingly won his place on the steps.
The competitors of SC "Kyokushin" Shumen continue their preparation for the upcoming exam for a higher level of technique (kyu), which will take place in January 2013 in Shumen under the guidance of the Technical director of the Bulgarian Karate Shinkyokushin Federation, coach of the National men and women's team and Branch-chairman of Bulgaria shihan Georgi Popov Vth dan.

In his next fight he was paired up with a Ukranian competitor and our karateka proved stronger, but with 10 seconds to go his opponent simulated a foul and unfortunately the referees punished Shumen's fighter and he unfairly lost his chance of a medal, having to accept 5th place in the standings, but showing that he has the quality to go much further.
The board of SC "Kyokushin" Shumen deemed this an excellent performance.
