I was a participant at that event in 2003 and tried to attack Mikhail with a knife. His movements are minimal, but his efficiency is amazing.
He makes you realize that when you are totally taken down - don't take it personally, it is just part of your training.
He also makes it clear that it only takes one correct punch...
and that relaxation and humility are the key.
Thank you for this production!
Great to see this timeless information!
