‘At the competitions, we’ve seen everything that makes SAMBO so beautiful: spectacular throws, the will to win, the tears of defeat and the delights of victory. One reason why this tournament is so marvelous is because it welcomes both little kids of five and above and experienced veterans of our favorite martial art,’ says Andrei Herzen, one of the German SAMBO coaches. ‘And we learned what heroic acts are sometimes performed in daily life, for the sake of SAMBO. Lithuanian girl Roberta Kondratteyte covers a distance of 70 km (there and back) in order to attend SAMBO classes twice a week. For such love of SAMBO, the organizers awarded her a special prize.’
