Sprejem ruskih atletov borilstva pri predsedniku Putinu:
No v Sloveniji nismo te sreče saj je v modi bolj tek kot borjenje  (ampak tu gre bolj za značaj naroda in njegove zgodovinske dresure), saj veste kako pravijo - tek je včasih koristnejši kot tako stigmatizirani konflikt kjer je koristna samozaščita s pomočjo borilstva kar pomembna komponenta. Nekateri ponosni narodi to gojijo in negujejo, drugi se tega odrekajo in celo zakrivajo pozornost na takšne dogodke. Tekmovalno športno borilstvo je za razliko od cirkuškega profesionalno-predstavitvenega ena zanimivejših odločitev pri športni usmeritvi modrejših narodov. Nekaterri narodi glredo celo tako daleč da zaščitijo svoje zgodovinske oblike borjenja - savate (Francija), sambo (Rusija), taekwondo (Koreja), tajski boks (Tajska), karate, judo, ju-jitsu, kendo, aikido (Japonska), ameriški boks - kikboks (ZDA), angleški boks (Velika Britanija), wu-shu kung fu (Kitajska), Slovenci bi lahko poskusili s svojo zgodovinsko Vaško situlo in borjenje z ročkami pa nam za kaj takega ni posebej mar, saj gre le za neko manjšo zgodovinsko posebnost (morda celo zelo pomembno veščino, ki bi pomagalo k razumevanju kulturne in vojaške dediščine Evrope - saj gre za borjenje z držalom meča v obeh rokah, ki nadomešča omejevanje nasprotnikovega meča in hkratno opazovanje manevriranja, kar je za šolanje historičnega mečevanja kar pomembno odkritje. Upajmo da te male skrivnosti že v naslednjem mesecu ne povzame s te spletne strani kakšen spretni obujevalec starih spretnosti.)

PRESIDENT OF RUSSIA VLADIMIR PUTIN: Good afternoon, friends,

I am very pleased to meet you, see you and shake hands. Later on they will bring us some champagne, and we can raise a glass to your performance at the World Combat Games. Not just any performance, but a brilliant one: 93 medals, 47 of them gold.

I think that you won medals in almost all types of martial arts. There is one exception, a very exotic sport, that has only been registered quite recently in Russia (just this year, a few months ago): kendo. But there are examples of brilliant victories in everything else. And you rose to the occasion even when competing with the founders of certain sports. In some cases, judging by the number of awards won, you even surpassed them. And in our traditional sports – wrestling and sambo – the results are simply brilliant.

I want to warmly congratulate you on these results, express my hope that we shall continue to develop combat sports together, and, as we used to say, make them really popular. And not simply because it’s very healthy, but because combat sports shape character, prepare people for the trials of life, and for service to the fatherland.

They build character because – and you know this better than anyone else – combat sports are those that are always associated with respect for one’s partner. And this is always helpful in life, not just on the carpet, on the mat, or in the ring. It helps in dealing with people, when building relationships, and seeking the best and greatest professional successes, no matter where you work today or might work tomorrow.

Once again I would like to wish you good luck and thank you for your achievements. Thank you very much.
