TSG Training Camp in Ukraine May 2010 2010-05-19

 From the 19th to the 23rd May 2010 the first
TSG training camp was held in Ukraine

From the 19th to the 23rd May 2010 the first training camp in Ukraine featuring TSG-Mix Fight was held. It was taught by Soke David Cook and his assistant Shihan Mikael Forsman. The training was devoted to the study of movements and techniques for fighting both while standing and Grappling. There were a lot of new details and nuances taught to us by Soke and Shihan Mikael Forsman.

We also have disassembled and studied Grappling Drill Number Nine and Grappling Drill Number Ten, which are included in the examination program for Shodan and Nidan.
Many students reached a very high methodical level due to the detail and repetition of the techniques taught.

Good cool weather promoted productive trainings.

At a general meeting with Soke a number of organizational questions about registration of the members and Branches etc. were decided.

A grading was also held and the following Black Belt grades were awarded:

Evgeny Tolmachev Sandan TSG-Mix Fight (Dnepropetrovsk)

Andrey Kazmiruk Shodan TSG-Mix Fight (Dnepropetrovsk)
Roman Filatenko Shodan TSG-Mix Fight (Dnepropetrovsk)

Sensei Evgeny Tolmachev was also handed the Certificate of the National representative for Tsu Shin Gen ÌÌÀ for Ukraine.

Sempai Pavel Chaban has received the Certificate for a Branch.

Soke David Cook has expressed his positive opinion about the opportunity of organizing and realization of an International Tournament in Ukraine and also the idea of holding the first Championship of the World on Tsu Shin Gen.

After the seminar there was an opportunity to do some sightseeing and to show our guests some of the history of Ukraine.

We send our greetings to you all! We wish you strong health and further successes in the study and knowledge BUDO!

The management and all participants of this remarkable event express huge Gratitude to our friend Dmitriy Molchanov, President of the Dnepropetrovsk Regional federation of Tsu Shin Gen MMA for his help in organization and the realization of this camp that allowed us to invite to Ukraine Soke David Cook and his assistant Shihan Mikael Forsman.
