Russian combat SAMBO stars Mikhail Mokhnatkin and Denis Goltsov conducted a master-class called "Lesson with a Star" in junior sports school No. 2 of Kalininsky district of St. Petersburg. This meeting and the whole "Lesson with a Star" project were initiated by FIAS President Vasily Shestakov, who visited the school together with the SAMBO athletes.

The meeting traditionally started with an introduction of the athletes to the schoolchildren and a short story about themselves. FIAS President Vasily Shestakov explained how SAMBO competitions were staged and what you could achieve if you trained persistently. Then the most interesting and exciting part for the children began. Mikhail Mokhnatkin and Denis Goltsov demonstrated their skills by showing various techniques, and taught the young athletes the secrets of SAMBO. The pupils diligently repeated the combinations they saw, trying to attract attention of the well-known wrestlers. Positive energy was received by both children and adults. And the enthusiasm and zeal of the young athletes to train in SAMBO will last for a long time.
