They received a greeting letter from the most successful of Shumen's karatekas - senpai Tsvetelina Marinova, who wrote them to chase their dreams and to never give up.
| Senpai Daniel Dimitrov handed an honorary plaque to Mr. Svilen Marinski and after that awarded the titled karatekas of the club for the year 2009: |

Honorary guests to the festivities were long-time friends of Shumen's karatekas - Plamen Georgiev and Panaiot Kadulov, who once again successfully took on the role of Santa Claus and handed out presents to both the young ones and the old ones.
Every karateka, as well as their senpai and parents, had to demonstrate their favourite technique for Santa, in order to earn their gift. In the end Santa himself made an impressive demonstration, to show that he deserves to wear his black belt.

Shumen's team also did well at the Eurpoean tournament in Kyokushin karate, which took place on the 3rd and 4th of April in Kiev, Ukraine.
In the juniors 55kg category Bogomil Tiholov made a great debut, decisively winning his quarterfinal match by knocking out his opponent from Litva with chudan mawashi geri under a minute.
In his semifinal round he faced a competitor of the home country and after a very close fight the judges favored the ukrainian. Shumen's young karateka was one of the youngest and lightest competitors at the European tournament (his weight is barely 51kg), but he gained very useful experience, showing that he has the qualities to fight for a bigger prize next year.
The tough pairings in the women 55kg. category met Diana Laleva with the much more experience Rita Pivoriunate from Litva in the very first duel and after a very tough fight our competitor lost to her more famous opponent. /Diana Laleva is on the first photo, to the far right/
|The greatest joy for us was brought by Shumen's Tsvetelina Marinova, who won the silver medal in the +65kg category and on 20.06.2009 took part in the World Cup, which took place in St. Petersburg in Russia. |
| There our girl had to face the national champion of Japan Amy Shoguci in her very first match. After a very close and even fight and extra time only because of a exageratted penalty /genten/ did the judges favor the japanese competitor. /On the second photo/|
