The Swedish team got new fighting experience after the World Championship in HMB “Battle of the Nations”-2018 in Italy. Jonas Balkefors – a captain of the National Team of Sweden told us about their workout routine after the championship.
“We usually have more soft kit trainings after tournaments trying new technics and tactics and doing feedback on our fighting. Additionally, more armour before tournaments. Tactical fighting, teamplay, movement and keeping mobility in the fighting are highlighted by me every single practice”.
According to the Swedish captain, he analyses Ukrainian and Russian buhurt teams on video, constantly seeking for analogies in professional martial arts and combative sports. Furthermore, a few times per year they manage local workouts in “4 vs 4″ buhurt.
Jonas Balkefors is trying to combine a workshop and a tournament in future events. They want to organize some workshops with foreign athletes.
We hope to see Swedish fighters in the lists of the biggest HMB tournaments.
