It was fair dinkum, Christine. They crushed it up pretty fine and the main guy who is a martial arts expert demonstrated how to do it. After that, everyone… parents and kids… had a go and quite truly not a single scratch on anyone. I think the idea was about overcoming fear, but yeah, I don’t think their insurance approved it…

26 July 2016. Fyodor Emelianenko Tells Us What’s Important

00 Fyodor Eremelianenko. 260716


Of course, you’d have to be living under a rock not to know that F V Emelianenko, eight-time MMA champ, is a big-time Orthodox Christian. Here, Fyodor Vladimirovich is holding one of our most sacred wonderworking images, the Kursk-Root Icon. This is a rare blessing and honour… it speaks of the high regard that he’s held in higher Church circles. Not all Christians are intellectuals or scholars… in fact, most of us aren’t. Reading won’t get you the Kingdom… simple humility will. Know yourself and act accordingly. Do the good that’s set in front of you… we’re Christians; that’s what we do!

14 July 2106. the Faith of MMA Champ Fyodor Emelianenko

00 Fyodor Emelianenko faith 140716


Fyodor Emelianenko is a big-time Orthodox Christian and patriotic Russian. Unlike smarmy and flashy Americans, he doesn’t make a huge show of his faith. However, most Orthodox believers are like Fyodor Vladimirovich… we don’t parade our faith… we let it show through our works and lives. That’s the way it should be. We’re Christians… that’s what we do…

President Yuri Martynov of the DNR Federation of Sport and Traditional Karate summed up how DNR karatekas* fared at the IJKA World Championships in Istanbul in late May, “We felt the support that our friends and the friends of our Republic gave us. We did our best to give a good showing, for it was important to prove our competitiveness in the global arena”. DNR Sport Minister Mikhail Mishin told reporters, “For the first time, our athletes took part in a World Cup as a DNR delegation. This was a historical event. We’ve punched our way into the international arena”. Athletes from 28 countries, including world-famous karatekas from Japan and Russia, attended the IJKA World Championships. DNR Deputy Minister of Youth, Sport, and Tourism Aleksandr Gromakov told journalists, “Our guys took first place in one of the most prestigious programmes in karate… kata mixed team. Anna Medvedeva took first place in the individual programme”. Besides gold medals, our karatekas also won silver and bronze. Honoured Master of Sports Anna Medvedeva said, “I got emotional over the fact that I was on the podium with our flag; that was perhaps even more intense than the victory itself”. Medvedeva, who won gold in Istanbul and bronze, said that the victory was possible thanks to support from “many people, including both sports officials and personally our Head of State, A V Zakharchenko“. Besides winning medals, our DNR sportsmen also received a samurai helmet from the chairman of the International Japan Karate Association as a sign of recognition of their sportsmanship and fighting spirit.
