                                             Statement on the subject of Tsunami: 


   I recommend Tsunami to my patients, because my theory is - based on my own experience - that it is the healthiest sport. Injuries practically don't occur, everyone trains within his own limitations (instructors do not force their students to do defined number of repetitions), no doping is present, and at least the atmosphere during and after training sessions is very nice.


   Exclusively I recommend trainings of Tsunami in Honbu Dojo (Central School) in Warsaw. Firtly: because of exceptionally nice atmosphere, resulting from characters and culture od people training here, secondly because of high level of trenings - during classes there train even several masters, which is hardly to be found in another clubs.


   I heartily recommend! During Tsunami classes You will not only improve your health, but also You will learn to protect it in case of assault.
