About 40 people who wanted to learn the secrets of self-defense from sambo’s arsenal gathered that day in Philadelphia sports club «Red Tiger» where they could get acquainted with the sport and make sure of its applied nature.

Being an acting policeman Robert Clark knows firsthand how important are self-defense techniques in a modern big city to the women and children.
