HIS TRAINER . ABOUT KONRAD

If discretion, politeness and elegance are the ingredients of a gentleman, then Konrad is a perfect gentleman. Add to this the fact that he can prove anytime that he is at least as good as any of the best sportsmen of  the team, without having disputes, without arguing, without talking too much about it and you’ll understand why Konrad is liked by girls from all the guys from the gym.

Nevertheless, as I did omit the truth about any of his colleagues, showing not only their qualities but also their weaknesses, I remind that it happens also presently to be force to apply with him extreme psychological techniques, for instance to let him know that, if he does not do his best in competitions, anxiety may be solved with a prick. Last time when I negotiated with the doctor to make him of an injection, Konrad went directly from the condition “I feel sick, I feel like throwing up” to a golden medal at the National Championship in the Kumite test, succeeding to defeat a redoubtable opponent. It could be seen on his face that he was ready to fight against anyone, but not to hear of other injection. :-)

“A fellow that you can rely on anytime, at any hour”, so he is considered by the other team members and it is vital to have in each team someone able to overcome conflicts, able to negotiate with the excesses of volcanic tempers. In the girl’s team there is Andreea. In that of the boys there is Konrad.

Agreed by the boys, liked by the girls, Konrad has another feature that distinguishes him from others of his age: the ability to be self-ironic in what concerns him. Rarely you meet a Karate boy champion to laugh sincerely at the jokes made on his account, either by boys or by girls and permanently by the coach. You must be very relaxed in what concerns you to accept it, and he is; this is one of the secrets for his charm. And Konrad already reaps the fruits of his character: he is the only sportsman from the gym who managed to attract an admirer to training, who came at the beginning just to watch him and then she joined the training to be next to him.

KONRAD . ABOUT HIS DREAM

For me, Project 2019 represents an opportunity to  reach that top where no Romanian has been before in this sport, Karate.

Firstly, for me as a sportsman, it is not just a project, but also a period of accumulation and development of details in order to become European and world champion. We do not have many opportunities to participate at European and World Championships for the competition of Teams Kata as the age differences offer us the chance to participate in the team than only by 2019 and 2020.

However, my opinion is that we have many reasons to win the golden medal and benefit by the advantages that come along with success, for example money (I want to mention that my coach told me, when he has read this, that I’m a little materialist, like my sister Katinka). These advantages are:

  • We have the best trainer of karate in Romania, who relies on the Italian training method, this country having many generations of European and world champions, trained by those methods. We also have very good connections with the World champions of Italy, and we attend their training internships for the purpose of learning new and useful things.
  • We have a very well defined project, and a very good management that will certainly provide us with strong sponsors with whom we will cooperate and we will go abroad to win.
  • We have a dream, for which we have trained and we’ll keep on training until we reach the 1st position at the European and World Championships. We all believe in this dream and I am sure we will not fail because we are a strong team with a lot of experience gained over the time.

In conclusion, I believe that everything will go well and we will participate at Championships very well trained, successfully, and 2019 will be the year when our Kata Team will win the first gold medals of Romania to the European and World Championships in an Olympic Karate.
