And some of the former pupils are eager to come back to their native town after graduating from some higher educational establishments in order to start their training career at the school. And this is really a pleasure as it can help not to lose the best sport traditions of the school.
The necessity of the school existence is out of question nowadays. The work is in full swing here, interesting events are happening and children are always crowded. The school is living as one big friendly family. It’s enough to see how furiously pupils sustain each others at competitions and to hear the endless respect in their voices when they speak of their tutors to feel the spirit of brotherhood and mutual aid that prevail here. One can find friends and like-minded persons here, and even one’s second half. Many Krasnokamsk sambo wrestlers notice that the school has become their second home and sometimes even the first one. Even people not connected with sport, on entering here admit that it’s hard to find such comfortable and friendly atmosphere which is peculiar to collectives united by love to the common cause.
Of course, the life and soul of the school was and is its director Vasiliy Perchik. The sambo wrestling school is more than life for him. He devoted himself to it completely. In spite of his external sternness he is loved by all pupils of the school and has the great authority among them. He remembers practically all of his 360 pupils by name and by their results.
The school is roughly developing multiplying the rows of neophytes and champions. The school is preparing for the house-warming which is planed to be in 2007.
All this became possible thanks to the federal program of building up sanitary sport complexes in small towns of Russia, which V.Perchik’s active position and contacts contributed to.
