                                             Statement on the subject of Tsunami:  


   I have trained martial arts for 26 years. For a long time I have trained judo, kyokushin, oyama karate, kickboxing and box, and got to know them very well.

   I started my interest in Karate Tsunami, because from my direct observations it was clear that it’s very effective style in a real fight. I had an opportunity to guard discos with Tsunami master, shihan Thaddeus Ryniec 6 dan, and thanks to him eye-witness efficient techniques, Tsunami’s strategy and it’s rules of fights.

   Tsunami’s statements hit the spot because of my psychic, directed towards real fight.
