The President of Nicaraguan Sambo Federation João Maldonado noted:

“I greatly appreciate FIAS and Nicaraguan government`s assistance in sambo development. We plan to go on with such seminars not only for coaches, but also for referees. At the moment we are working on the program of children and youth sambo development as well as implementation of sambo in the National Nicaraguan Police force and the National Army training system”.
