ITS Campus, ITS News – Not only in the field of technology, the academic community of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) has been able to make achievements at the international level. This achievement was made by one of the lecturers from the Department of Marine Engineering ITS Dr. Eng Kriyo Sambodho ST Meng who made Indonesia proud by winning a silver medal at the 3rd Traditional Karate Asia – Oceania Cup 2022 event in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, last Sunday (11/12).

Dhodot, as he is affectionately known, explained that the competition organized by the Uzbekistan Traditional Karate-Do International Traditional Karate Federation (ITKF) was attended by 11 countries. Among them are Uzbekistan, Japan, Egypt, Pakistan, Kuwait, Indonesia, Palestine, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

Dhodot continued his silver medal in the 46 to the 50-year-old category because of preparations that had been made since the beginning of last year. During this period, the Marine Building Construction Laboratory lecturer underwent long-term training with the East Java Regional Board of the Indonesian Traditional Karate Federation (INATKF).

Even though the difference hampered them in weather due to the cold winter, Dhodot and other karatekas from Indonesia could still give their maximum performance while in Uzbekistan. “Competing in winter is the first experience for most Indonesian representatives with only two days of preparation to adapt,” he said.

Dhodhot revealed that a positive response was also received from the Head of INATKF, Muchlas Rowi, who welcomed the achievements of the karateka who managed to bring three gold, two silver and seven bronze medals. The gains from these five karatekas brought Indonesia to second place as the General Champion in the competition.

Having been involved in this sport since he was in junior high school, Dhodot has often made his name in several competitions both on a national and international scale. Among them at the National Championship (Kejurnas) Erick Thohir Cup and second place at the International Czech Open Karate Cup 2021 in the age category 46 to 50 years.

Through this achievement, Dhodot wants to convey to ITS students to be tireless and diligent in exploring the fields they like. Dhodot believes that accompanied by prayer, intelligence and belief will bring success if done seriously. “Success will follow if something is done sincerely, full of sacrifice, and not just pursuing material things,” he concluded.

The names of other karatekas who have excelled in donating medals for Indonesia at the event include Erwin Syauridhani, Devia Amylia Putri, Ehwatu Zuriyah, and Robertto Lusiandro Manu. (ITS Public Relations)
