Foreword by the organisation
We are proud organizing the third edition of European Open Duo Games. Last year’s edition received the very high approval rating from the athletes/supporters/coaches and referees. This approval rating pleases us a lot and also shows that this contest form has a large amenity value.
Ju-Jitsu Duo Games is a great technical comparative contest form and is registered as a fully and autonomous event on the European contest calendar. Furthermore it is an event with a large strength of binding elements and many innovations.
One of the binding elements at this European Open, is the performance of live musicians. They are composing their music especially for the Duo Games. Another binding aspect is the support from the municipality Medemblik, hence also the community is involved.
We have an incredible team of volunteers who contribute to a sportive, sensational, welcoming and swirling event for young and old. Business community is also well visible as the moral code of budo is also well applicable for many organisations.
We are honestly really proud on our great team of more than 50 volunteers who put, full of passion, a High Standard event in 2018 and 2019. We are taking a deep bow for these fantastic people, they will again realize a day with Topsport which will be one to remember. The number of participating top duo’s has grown from 65 to over 90 duo’s, making it the largest duo games event in Europe!
We will also establish a link to our fight against cancer. Normally a part of the registration fee is intended for Kika, but this time we choose for an active support of the foundation Miranda Mania. From this foundation a lot of money has raised for cancer research the past years.
In short, the European Open Ju-Jitsu is not just an event, it’s priceless!

Dear Sports Friends!
It gives me great pleasure to invite you for the our third continental championship Medemblik European Open in DUO system, the DUO games. 2020 is a year of a lot of new activities in Europa, this European Open in DUO is one of them.
I hope that positive approach, patience and good governance will improve the conditions for our athletes and further recognition of their achievements in the future. The championship will take place in Wognum.
I would also like to use this opportunity to thank the team of Budoschool Shi-Sen-Do from Opperdoes and other supporters, sponsors for their support. It is always nice to witness the amount of understanding of importance of sports beyond the promotional level – the effect on education and building friendship. My compliments to Budoschool Takken/Shi-Sen-Do and their team for their professional approach, effective response, love and enthusiasm they have invested in ju-jitsu and, in particular, in the DUO systems for the European Open in DUO systems 2018-2019-2020-2021.
We wish you a pleasant stay and please remember that winning is nice, but being part of a Medemblik European Open is a reward in itself. Be proud of yourself, be proud to be part of the ju-jitsu world.
