“Senator Andy Manar helped with visas and also held the press conference with the Mayor of Springfield – Jim Langfelder. The teams from Russia, Mexico, Austria and Canada all came to USA with no particular problems. Senator and Mayor are close friends and fans of the sport. Mayor was even cheering during the gold medal fight. Media was helping a lot too. Just after the end of the tourney, we already have two new clubs forming by people, who attended the event. The announcer for the tournament was Jim Leach – the number one talk radio host in the city. Rudy Knight of the Company of the Black Swan did all of the video live streaming and media. That was a great help and we want to thank everyone!”
HMB International Association and HMBIA News editorial office also want to say thank you to all the people that one way or another take part in our movement, be it the organizing of the events, volunteering, help with the documents, fighting, training etc. You people are priceless! All of you make HMB movement grow faster all over the world.
