Being the only participant from my country in the 8th TCFE Internal Martial Arts Championships in St. Petersburg, as well as a non Russian speaking one, I expected to run into some problems. But from the first e-mail contact Mrs. Anna Hilmi guided me through the process and helped me to feel at ease from the moment I arrived at the airport. During registration someone helped me to figure out what to do where and at what time on Saturday. During the competition all the people from the organization were so helpfull and caring as if I was the only participant. I want to congratulate Mr. Andrei Seredniakov and Mrs Hilmi and all the others with the result of their extensive preparations. For me this was one of the most impressive competitions I ever participated in and surely one I will never forget. Thank you to all the people who helped to organize this event.
