Welcoming speech of the Deputy Prime Minister, Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yu.P. Trutnev at the opening of the World Cup in hand-to-hand fighting

Dear Friends! Greetings to all the guests of the World Cup in hand-to-hand fighting!

Hand-to-hand combat is a primordially Russian type of martial arts. For centuries, mastering hand-to-hand combat techniques helped our ancestors defend the independence of Russia.

Today it is a popular sport in many countries around the world. The number of fans of hand-to-hand fighting is in the hundreds of thousands of people.

However, like any other form of martial art, hand-to-hand combat is not only a sport. It is a lifestyle, a philosophy, a set of practices that allow you to believe in yourself, temper your will and character, and achieve high results in work and life.

I wish all the athletes beautiful fights and memorable victories, and I wish the spectators unforgettable impressions!

Yu. Trutnev
