VIVA – The DKI Jakarta Kickboxing Team has successfully fulfilled its ambition to win the 2022 All Tatami Kickboxing Championship which will be held at the Widya Kartika Building, Surabaya, East Java, 28-30 January 2022.
The Capital Team, led by Yoko Arthi Budiman, who fielded the three gyms, won 15 gold, 9 silver and 4 bronze. Namely, Hyper Haken (6 gold, 6 silver and 2 bronze), Siam Training Camp (5 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze), and Siam Papua Top Team (4 gold and 1 bronze).
“I appreciate the struggle of athletes and coaches who have succeeded in meeting the target of becoming the most medal collectors as well as being the overall champion,” said Yoko Arthi Budiman who is also the Chair of the DKI Jakarta KBI Pengprov.
“I hope that all athletes continue to practice and improve their achievements because the competition will be tougher in the future. Because kickboxing, which has successfully undergone exhibition matches at the XX Papua National Sports Week (PON) 2021, has a great chance of being competed at PON XXI North Sumatra-Aceh 2024 ,” he added.
The coach of the DKI Jakarta Kickboxing Team, Marlaut Farhan Hutapea, who had studied for a year in Thailand, said the results were the fruit of the hard work of athletes who were serious about carrying out preparatory training programs. He also gave his appreciation to Fhay and his friends who have matched the achievements of the Jakarta ring fighter athletes.
“The achievements of Tatami athletes are not inferior to the achievements of fighter athletes who have penetrated the SEA Games in the Philippines 2019 and the Kickboxing World Championship in Italy 2021. In the future, I hope they are more motivated to be able to achieve better achievements in international events,” said the coach who successfully scored Raul Pinem who will strengthen the Indonesian contingent at the SEA Games Hanoi, Vietnam 2022.
Meanwhile, the trainer of Hyper Haken, Donfri Oktovai Tollo admitted that he did not expect his gym to become the most medal collectors at the 2022 All Tatami Championship. “We are very grateful and very unexpected, because it brought relatively few athletes compared to other teams/contingents to be able to collect the most medals. All this could not be separated from the support of Mr. Yoko,” he said.
