All of them went trough obligatory PCR tests that were provided by the Bulgarian Karate Kyokushin Federation and the Kyokushin World Union. The training sessions were also done with taking all the precaution measures provided by the Ministry of Health.

KWU International Professional League’s main goal is to upgrade the skill set of the professional fighters, to build on their technique and tactics that will ultimately increase the level of the fights and also to extract the most essential from the Kyokushin, Muay Thai and Kickboxing traditions. The importance of the full contact rules is embedded in the SENSHI fight nights since their beginning.
