His coaching is based on the methods of his best teachers: honored coach of the USSR and Russia Magomed Huseynov and honored coach of Yakutia and Russia Ivan Sivtsev.

    “The victories and achievements of the kids are largely the result of extencive work on the development of sports culture in ALROSA. Champions appear where they love and support the sport. Our most important task is to grow a healthy and strong generation. I believe that thanks to ALROSA, Mirny residents have a unique opportunity to play national sports. Hapsagai, mas-wrestling and wrestling are not just sports, they’re the part of the people culture. I think the revival, support and development of national sports is very valuable,”says Motrena Skryabina, the Head of the ALROSA Cultural and Sports Complex. “We have a specially equipped for wrestling room in Olympus sports complex. I would like to note that we are still recruiting to the club. We accept all comers. You can sign up at any time at the following address: 22 Leningradsky Avenue, Mirny. We accept children from 7 to 16 years old, as well as adults. The fee is small. The Cultural and Sports Complex has set the minimum payment.

    And most importantly, sport is not just about records and medals. It’s an active lifestyle, health, cheerfulness, optimism and longevity. You don't have to be a professional athlete to benefit from and enjoy sports.
