Vincent Bu?ka, the Vice-captain of national team, looked back on the active phase of HMB in his country: “For me personally, the most outstanding battle was on Czech Elimination Tournament in year 2015, when we were a full team of 8 Slovakian fighters and in the “5 vs 5″ category we won the Bronze medal. This was a proof for me, that if we are in full force, we are capable to perform great”.
“Since 2 years ago many of key members are working outside of Slovakia, we have only individual training and we see each other only at our annual meeting or on tournaments.
This so called “Pause” for our HMB movement takes now for the second year in a row. Despite, HMB is our big hobby, and we try to make it popular”.
Currently 8 fighters of Slovakia are split between 2 clubs. One club called “HMB Slovakia”. Fighters from “HMB Slovakia” experience with Battle of the Nations and build the core of the Slovakian national team. The second club called “MFC Legendary Warriors.” It is a young club and the fighters are collecting experience in tournaments in nearby countries. Clubs are supporting each other. Members meet on regular basis, make training together. Cooperation is very close.
Very soon they will have an important event – the annual meeting of all HMB participants. There’ll be vectors of development for the next year to determine. In particular, the question of Slovakia’s participation in the “Battle of Nations”- 2018 will be the subject of discussion.
Vincent Bu?ka told: “Our participation in the year 2018 depends on the results of the standard Annual meeting at the end of this year (2017). The best outcome of the meeting would be the result of confirmed 8 fighters for Battle of the Nations 2018”.
HMBIA News sincerely wishes Slovakian HMB-community a positive solution to this issue and, of course, intensive development in the nearest future!
