Hello, Danny! Recently we did a lot to promote your Combat Ultimate System and WMAF. There are many difficult to prove the advantage of membership in an organization. But we managed in the professional environment of martial arts to prove the viability of Russian Combat Ultimate System (CUS) and the importance of WMAF.
From tomorrow to begin training the children's group. Children aged 6 to 10 years in this group the first time since the beginning will do according to your instructions and procedures, as well as program CUS.
In addition the club in the Northern Administrative District of Moscow under the leadership of Sergei Zapevalina Masters, whose three rooms, which are engaged in school-age children, is also interested in joining the program WMAF and kick start kids Chuck Norris.
He is interested in involvement in your system, you as a great master and disciple of Chuck Norris. Thus, in our Federation has begun the process of opening new gyms, part of which will start the program CUS.
There will be new members WMAF, will receive membership dues. We just do not expect a large income, as people need to prove the benefits of membership in WMAF, they will pay in excess of the cost of training.
Before I and my instructors trained free students from the poor, but we also recruit their commercial group, which should provide pay instructors.
At the end of April, we expect to perform well on the 6th Martial Arts Olympics in St. Petersburg. It will be a good advertisement for us.
But I ask you now to join us and make your video endorsement for us. This will greatly help our cause.
I would also like to ask you to fix your site information about me. It says Mikhail Markovich. Write, please, Michael Epstein.

The kids are very dedicated learning Jujitsu . One of my top students Alexy was planning to visit China on a school but has insisted that he would rather be a my Jujitsu class on fridays than go to China . That was very touching to me as his Sensei . Iam busy fund raising to collect money to help buy Judo uniforms for the underprivileged youth in my Judo club.And we are now in the rainy season and most of my kids in the dojo suffer with malaria . So Iam busy trying to buy them mosquito sleeping nets to protect them from malaria. My students are always sick with malaria and it effects their training every month . Iam also looking at helping some of my students finish their schooling this coming term.All THE young people in OUR community look to our dojo as a lighthouse for young people to come and learn the budo disciplines and where they can seek help spiritual advice and counseling . We also teach Godly principles and values for their spiritual lives . Many of them come from a life of drugs and drink abuse to become strong leaders in their own communities .
