Instructor Akaishi gave us his impressions of the camp "There was Tarial Nikoleishvili and many WT fighters, coaching staff from the Russian team so the quality of training was extremely high. I could sense the dedication and attitude, and the strong desire to learn from the participants. After going through training and
taking a close look at the members training with a focused mind and passion I was able to perceive the foundation of the strength of the Russian team"
