Halmurat Izmaylov, President of Turkmenistan Kickboxing Federation, two-time European champion and World Cup winner, shares about the prospects for young kickboxers:
– The athletes can became the members of the youth national team of Turkmenistan; over time, the best will be selected to participate in international tournaments under the Turkmen flag. The most important thing for athletes as of now is to compete more and gain necessary practice.
In sports, something like this can happen as someone up to 12–13 ages, or even up to 16 ages, does not develop, and then comes out at 20 ages to become an Olympic champion at 21 age.
Competitions help to develop not only sports or fighting skills, but also to contribute to improve moral and human qualities. During the training process, it seems that everyone can be the master of sports in future, but only self-motivated person overcoming difficulties can truly develop the potential.
