The course was held at the gym “Pattinodromo” sufficiently spacious to allow all the participants to work out without problems. Participants have a high technical level that we precede quickly with the program, questions are numerous and the Teachers give evidence of their knowledge and competence, as you already know GM Marano is like a living encyclopaedia. Unfortunately, after the incident where he was the victim, GM Bos can move only with on crutches so he can’t express his talent in teaching. He looks like a lion in a cage! However we can feel always his presence.

For the Italians GM Ung is a welcome change, his technical knowledge on sparring and competition matters was a great success among the participants, his charisma and his humility capture everyone’s attention.

In the end all participants enjoyed the course very much.
