They say every beginning is hard, and it wasn’t any different with our National Team. We lacked fighters, armor, money, but we didn’t reject the idea to create a team for this year’s tournament. Our fighters had strong desire to become members of HMBIA family. So, step by step, here we are, ready for “Battle of the Nations”-2014.
We are coming to Trogir with 8 fighters, and we will participate in duels (one fighter) and “5 vs 5.” I`m sad because we had a lot more fighters but due to our lack of funds, country`s difficult economic situation and recent flood that struck us, they were not able to come with us. Nevertheless, we have a very strong team and I believe that we will show our best, as well as other teams, of course, because it’s what we come for. We expect to have great time in Trogir, to meet a lot of new friends and to test ourselves. We are aware that we are considered to be underdogs at this tournament, but we promise to show our best. I feel a great responsibility as a captain because this is our first year and we are making, as I like to say, baby steps. Great things for our young team are yet to come.
