We saw some very cool fighters today. They demonstrated everything that the martial arts are valued for – diverse technique, excellent ground fighting and brilliant throws. But most importantly, these fighters demonstrated their courage, stamina and audacity. I would like to thank them. Let’s give them another cheer!
