All right, now time to turn our attention to something remarkable.
Yes, this is Roman Nesterenko’s coach, Roman Reznik. He coaches Roman and he’s got him up to the standard where he is today. Roman’s going to do an ice breaking demonstration for us, he’ll kick with his shin and his foot and then he’ll do another ice break on five blocks of ice with his elbow. Here he is with the ice breaking with his foot. Back spinning kick.
I tell you, these are massive blocks of ice, this is a lot harder than what you think it is. These aren’t any ice cubes, now this is unbelievable what he’s going to attempt to do here. Oh! That’s a powerful kick there, that’s… guys if you’ve ever seen this live; it is one of the most awesome things.
You call it powerful, I call it lunacy.
I think most people who’ve never seen it before would say exactly the same thing. Oh, the power!, this is incredibly hard.
Also on this video is the grand final. The Inaugural Full Contact Karate World Challenge Final.
Welcome Lukas Kubilius, from Lithuania. Big smile on his face, you don’t see that often in a final. Obviously feeling confident, he’s a big man, he’s in with a good chance you know, he’s got that really spoiler type technique, might just be enough to put Roman off his game and he could win. He is bigger, he’s 110 kilos.
He’s 3 cm taller than his opponent as well which can only be beneficial in this sport.
188 cm, that’s about 6’3” in the old money.
He’s unique, he’s got a real relaxed boppy style at this stage. He appears to be quite relaxed and when it’s almost time, he just switches on like a light switch.
Of course that means that the Russian, Roman Nesterenko and his arrival in the auditorium is imminent. Lukas Kubilius about to face the world’s best in a hugely important event.
Cool as a cucumber but these guys both know it’s for the money and for the title. This is going to go hell for leather.
Roman Nesterenko means business.
Here we go, the final. The Inaugural Full Contact Karate World Challenge……..
