So some people received possibility to compete with more experienced iaidokas and therefore you can see same names in not only category.
The refereeing was conducted by all present sandans and one godan (Leonid Karavaev) under supervision by Peter Röder (renshi, 6dan Iaido).

The competition results were the next:
1st: Daria Ruseva (club "Kaiseikan", Varna)
2nd: Galin Todorov (club "Shinbukan", Sofia)

Leaders of three clubs, participated in the championship, were asked l to write a bit.

Kostadin Vodenicharov (3dan iaido, club "Plovdiv Kendo Kai", Plovdiv, main organizer of the championship):
“On Sunday, 15th of April, the Iaido event included warmup, ZNKR Seitei kata points explanation followed by a practice session, a shiai embu, and individual competitions for four groups. Peter Röder Sensei and Leonid Karavaev Sensei oversaw the Iaido program and made sure everything ran smoothly and according to the rules. Our experiment rule (where the people that reached the top of their group continued to compete in the next higher group) proved quite useful in making the competitors show their best.
I am happy to say that although the event is named as a competition there was a feeling of mutual cooperation and friendship between the participants that I hope helped them improve themselves through this experience. My thanks go to everyone that participated in the event and everyone that helped make it a reality.”

Tsvetoslav Nikolov (3dan iaido, club "Shinbukan", Sofia):
“Our club Shinbukan participated in the event and was represented by eight iaidokas from Sofia and one from Veliko Tarnovo, competed in all four categories.
The tournament organisation was impeccable – from the participants’ accommodation at the hotel and the sayonara party, to the tournament events themselves, the awarding ceremony and the participants’ see-off.
The competition took place in a very pleasant atmosphere and a spirit of friendship and cooperation. What was very useful and valuable was the participation of Peter Roeder sensei (Germany, iaido 6th dan), who opened the competition with a short seminar session, including a warm-up part, demonstration, and explanation of the seitei katas’ main points, as well as individual training which introduced the possibility of giving personal advice and guidance.
The tournament matches were also preceded by a demonstrative match, as well as by detailed referee instructions. The competition ended with iaido kyu grade examinations, followed by an award- and diploma-giving ceremony. All contestants from Club Shinbukan are fully satisfied by the environment in which the tournament took place and are looking forward to its next edition in 2019. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all organizers of and participants in the tournament!”

(Leonid Karavaev)id Karavaev (5dan iaido, club "Kaiseikan", Varna):
“Well, it’s difficult to add to my friends’ words above written. It was really nice event with productive and friendly atmosphere. All of us received more good experience. So let me to write just some my impressions and thoughts
- This our rule with coming up to higher group gave very special moment for observation. Let me to illustrate it on base of a competitor, who collected 3 medals in 3 different categories. It was Daria from our club (you can see young fair-haired girl in the photos). Everybody knows that any competition is enough difficult and exciting thing. For Daria it was her first competition participation. Let’s see her from side: first pool… first shiai… then some deep breathings and clothes&sageo fixing – and back to second shiai. Then after few shias – one more… then after one shiai – again… and finishing by golden medal in “Mudan”. It meant “Bingo! Daria goes to next level game”, so after few minutes she go to “Ikkyu+Shodan” (having previously memorized another set of katas for the category) and to have several shiais again. And again “Bingo”: she became 2nd in the category and stepped to next level - “Nidan”. Again memorizing new set of katas, again several shiais (BTW - with more experienced opponents) and… 3rd place in “Nidan”. It was a good stayer distance in one Iaido competition, my dear friends.
- In the first pool in “Nidan” grope we had special situation: all of them were with 1 win 2:1 ippons. So we had for them “encho” as one kata for all simultaneously with for referees.
- As you see on pictures, Peter-sensei brought one small cup there. It was his first trophy in Iaido competition in 2000th year. Peter passed it as special gift to winner in highest category in Bulgarian iaido national (Sandans for now), as carry-over trophy. So now it kept by Alexey Alchin and would be passed to next winner in next year (or kept again – we will see!). It was very exciting moment. I personally believe that the cup (the first trophy of so many years regular and successful competitor as Peter), given with best wishes and wholeheartedly, will bring fortune to Bulgarian iaido competitors. Many thanks to you, Peter-sensei!
- Let me to note that all participants of the event (and competitors and referees) are in line of Rene-sensei. Dear Rene-sensei, thank you very much for our teaching!
- And let me to remind that the next Iaido competition in Bulgaria will be during the 9th summer budo camp, named “Varna Open” (7th edition). We wait all you there
