Gajdošík, Czech Republic: “We had the most crucial time with New Zealand”

    “Battle of the Nations”-2014:   MEMORY REMAINS     I was really surprised by the debut of Mexican team, because they fought really well. Other team which surprised me was Argentina. The guys had really improved all their skills compared to the previous “Battle of the Nations” and defeating them was really harder this time. I remember almost everything, because I like the movement and people in it.   We…

We brought not only wonderful memories, but also a useful combat experience, which should help us during "Battle of the Nations"-2015.   This year our team has…

Villani, Argentina: “The most important thing is to enjoy this amazing sport”

    Experience obtained at the World Championship in HMB “Battle of the Nations”-2014 is so versatile. You get too much within a few days. It was great to spend time with fighters from different parts of the world. And all of them were so kind to explain things and share their fighting experience with us. Of course, this year’s participation wasn’t the first for us, we knew many things,…

Franco Bianchetti, Switzerland: “For all of us, this year was a test, and we’ve passed it!”

Franco Bianchetti, Switzerland: “For all of us, this year was a test, and we’ve passed it!”

    Debut of the full team was right at “Battle of the Nations”-2014. Before Croatia we went to some events or trainings, but never five fighters from Switzerland were together as one team vs another team. In general, I think, we had a good result. Of course it was possible to get a better one via harder training, but since we were there for the very first time all…

Chevasco Diaz, Argentina: “I also remember our chance to win a round in a battle against Ukraine”

  MEMORY REMAINS  “Battle of the Nations”-2014      A thing I remember best is the hospitality of the Italian team. They treated us like brothers-in-arms. I remember the two hardest fights we had against Team Italy. For me it was one of the most difficult fights in the whole tournament, because it was difficult to fight with them as they were our friends.   I also remember our chance…

    MEMORY REMAINS “Battle of the Nations”-2014   I’m quite happy about the result, it was better than my expectations. Good results in buhurt and triathlon, for the first time at “Battle of the Nations.”   For me it was the first time at “Battle of the Nations”, so I didn’t know what to expect. I only knew that Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Poland had very strong teams, but…

Harris, New Zealand: “I did yelp a little in my helmet when he stood on me and said “please, don’t use that, ok?”

    MEMORY REMAINS  “Battle of the Nations”-2014   The most memorable fights we had this year were against the Ukraine and Poland teams. They were both very strong opponents and kicked our arses really quickly, we didn’t fight either of them in 2013 and it was a lot of fun, I would have to say though out of the both of them. The fight against Poland… I remember the…

Quayle, UK: “Fighting on the lists against the Russians filled me with adrenaline, my heart was thumping in my chest”

Quayle, UK: “Fighting on the lists against the Russians filled me with adrenaline, my heart was thumping in my chest”

    Team UK participated in “Battle of the Nations” World Championship in France in 2013. I did not fight then as I didn’t know about the sport. 95% of the team that fought in “Battle of the Nations” this year were new fighters, who had never fought in any HMB-tournaments before and who started their training in January (including myself). We did well as for novices, we learnt a…

Pohl, Czech Republic: “It was a nice lesson for us :)”

    MEMORY REMAINS  “Battle of the Nations”-2014       The best thing was to see my guys participating in “All vs All” category. They were the last non-Russian fighters standing and fighting. I was pleased a lot :).   And I was really surprised by the Teams of Mexico and Argentina. Mexico participated for the first time and they were really tough guys. And Argentina showed a considerable progress…

Coors, Germany: “HMB also gave me a chance to compete internationally against the best and to learn from them.”

Coors, Germany: “HMB also gave me a chance to compete internationally against the best and to learn from them.”

    Sebastian Coors, fighter of the “Zitadelle e.V.” club (Germany), fighter of the National Team of Germany     I've been into HMB for three years now. I’ve chosen triathlon because I prefer to be solely responsible for my wins or losses. I’ve never been much of a team player and I prefer to depend on myself, my own training and skills in a fight. I also like the…
