Teams from Switzerland, Austria, France and all over Germany made yesterday Shooto "Rookies VII" a truly international event and it is nice to see how the Shooto family in our area is growing more and more. With well over 30 fights, yesterday's event once again offered a great fight card for all involved, even though due to Corona there were no spectators on site in the German Top Team were allowed by the organizer.
Eugen Braun's Fightskool Kempten stood out in particular, taking 1st place in the team classification with two gold medals won by Denis Snegur and Daniel Schevchuk.
