Do you like tactical martial arts, where insight is more important than power? Come and see our guests from Russia demonstrate their Martial Arts. Learn about two real Martial Arts sports: belt wrestling an Sambo. Sambo literary means: self defence without weapons. You will learn to combine the most effective techniques from several martial arts sports. Sambo is a combination of judo and wrestling. And that is the second Martial Art sport from Russia: beltwrestling.
In addition to belt wrestling and Sambo, the Russians will also show Toxophily. This is a tradional form of archery. Archery from Buryatia has a long history and is part of a traditional ritual. These sport matches are dedicated to the goodness of the hunt and the forest.
The bow is made out of wood and bones of animals. And a base made of wood of 2 by 4 meters, covered with a carpet. The athletes must wear traditional costumes and shoot over a distance of 45 to 50 meters at the base.
