– I practice many sports throughout the year- from running and swimming to CrossFit and wrestling. Everything depends on how soon you have to go out to fight. Sometimes a single fight falls for 12 months, and last year there were as many as four fights, which, of course, became stress for the body.
Damkovsky is sure: that all kinds of sports are good; the main thing is to approach to them competently and with mind.
