The USA is highly interested in the HMB Soft discipline development. This discipline is taken seriously and consistently here. Sergei Myasischev, the head of the HMBIA Marshal Committee held an online seminar where 33 leaders from North Amerci took part, among whom were team captains, gym owners, local organization leaders took part. Several representatives of South America who are partners of the HMB USA didn’t want to miss out on such an opportunity to gain new useful experience and joined the seminar as well. Participants discussed the issues of building competent work in the promotion and development of the Soft discipline during the workshop.
According to Sergei Myasischev, there were discussions about the main and special features of the discipline in comparison with the HMB sport in steel armor, the issues of organizing the safety of the training process, the structure of the HMB Soft competition, as well as PR issues – how to correctly identify the advantages of the discipline to parents of potential students. Also the participants of the workshop outlined plans for future online meetings.
Brad Blackmon, the Vice President of HMB USA, noted that after the workshop there is a lot of work to be done for all participants of the event:
“Now they will take it to their fighters and hopefully it will grow from each local area now. Our average distance between clubs is about an 8 hour drive so having each club work autonomously is a must.
In addition, work on the HMB Soft development in the USA is planned to be regular:
“We are hopefully going to work with Myasishchev once a month now to go over specific training of the children now that the USA has been properly introduced to HMB Soft”.
We will certainly inform you about the further development of the discipline in the following publications.
