I even didn't expect this day to come... but it came! Today I got an official letter from the President of the Ukrainian Wushu Federation which informed me that I got my place in the Ukrainian National Wushu Team. Now I gotta prepare for European and World championships 2014!First time I became the member of the National Team in 2008...but didnt go for it. And now, after 5 years I AM BACK and I continue honor my Country!
US Open Martial Arts Tournament 2013, New York City, NY, USA. For me, competing at European or World Championships are important. But, NYC - the city, full of legends and myths... Chuck Norris fought there,... Bruce Lee did his presentations... So when I got the invitation I was 100 % sure that I was going to go and compete. It was an honour to be judged by the legendary Master Chen, " The Pearl of Tai JI" and to get high scores from him and the board of judges.Concerning San da competition : it was amazing experience. I was offered (and accepted the offer) to fight against 265 lbs former UFC fighter from Puerto Rico (my weight is about 205 lbs).It was just ''wow''... like kissing the express train. However,... I guess was lucky enough to win.
Its been a while I had no opportunity to go to my home town, but I made it last weekend. So, besides staying with my family - I was happy to meet and train with my Coach : Ukrainian and World Bodybuilding Champion, The Oak from Ukraine, Vadim Komarnitskiy
After 3 years of absence on the stage -I am back! Got 2nd place for quan shu and 3d place in jixie, with only 0,1 difference with the 1st place, which was taken by the current member of the Ukrainian wuhsu team!
harmony in me->love in the family->order in the nation->peace in the world ...Read more
