The Authentic camp on day after the end of the HMB World Championship Battle of the Nations was quiеt. Thanks to the weather and intensive fights on the last day of the event all teams preferred to relax and enjoy this medieval atmosphere in a peаce. HMBIA News met Yang Tian, a civil representative of the Chinese national team. He had joined BOTN for the first time and was really impressed. He loved everything around him:
“I think it’s wonderful. It’s the first time I came here. I feel like a true fighter. I`ve never joined this organization before so this time I feel fantastic”.
Yang practiced HMB for 1 year, but this time he is a civil. He is inspired and planning to enter the lists of the next Battle of the Nations as a fighter. But there is one thing that is also important and it makes the Championship something special for all its participants. This is not just fighting, culture is more important. Different countries with different cultures come and share not only strikes on the lists, they meet new friends and share traditions with each other. There is a great tradition to change surcoats with foreign friends. The Chinese fighters gave their surcoats to the Netherlands fighters and got the gift back.
It shows us one more time that the toughest fights in the lists end with friendly and sporting embraces; opponents in sport can be good friends outside the battlefield. We are sure that this tradition will live for years as a symbol of friendship that has no limits and borders.
