The Israeli national team this year will participate in almost everything of what the HMB World Championship Battle of the Nations 2019 has to offer. These brave fighters under the leadership of permanent captain Mikhail Morgulis and vice-captain Irina Rogozovskaya registered for almost every nomination.
The male part of the national team will take part in all fencing nominations, profights in two weight categories, 5 vs 5, 12 vs 12, 30 vs 30 buhurts and of course in the already legendary 150 vs 150.
The women do not lag behind. Despite the fact that there are only two of them, they will appear on the lists as the legionnaires of the Polish women’s team in the nomination 5 vs 5, as this is our favorite nomination. In addition, they will represent Israel in the fencing nominations Sword and Shield and Sword and Buckler and in profights that this year women will have an absolute category, that is, without divisions into weight categories
Mikhail shared with us that, as always, he plans to take part in fights and lead his team into battle. He is looking forward to this moment and prefers to lead by example.
Mikhail also said that, in working with the team, he focuses on combat techniques and security:
“We try to motivate fighters. We tune in to sports aggression and technique, but at the same time we focus on reducing injuries to both our own and our rivals”.
And what inspires Michael himself? For many years, one of the most famous persons in HMB community has been inspired by people who are fighting with him under one flag, support from the stands and the battles themselves …
We are confident that at the World Championship in HMB “Battle of the Nations” -2019 Mikhail Morgulis and his team will have many inspiring fights. For inspiration that will last a long time!
