“Dmitry Baranov’s Leadership Principles” international master of sports in kickboxing

The future kickboxing champion of Belarus, smelter-spreader of workshop No. 8 of Naftan OJSC Dmitry Baranov came to his first training at the age of eight. Now he is 29. During his sports career, a master of sports of international class conducted more than 400 fights. 10 of them took place in 2016 to an Iranian rival at the Legend of IMEI K-1 rules tournament in China. In August, Naftanovets won the battle of the aforementioned tournament. And in October, the kickboxer reached the semi-finals of this competition and took third place in the European kickboxing championship in Slovenia.

Dmitry Baranov is training on the basis of Novopolotsk. According to him, the ideal and example for each athlete is a coach. And the best teacher for himself is Peter Hamenok. During the preparation for the competition, the athlete meets his mentor twice a day. In normal mode, Dmitry trains at least once a day and comes to the gym twice on weekends.

Last year, the kickboxing championship of Belarus became the most significant for Dmitry Baranov. Naftanovets not only snatched the victory from last year’s champion, but also made his light heavyweight debut (81 kg). Prior to that, he boxed in the 75 kg category. The competition became the qualifying stage of the European Championship. In addition to Dmitry, the number of winners of the championship included his colleague not only in sports, but also in workshop No. 8 Alexander Kupreshkin.

“The main champion qualities are hard work, aspiration, willpower and fortitude,” says Dmitry Baranov. – The most difficult thing is when you need to train, grit your teeth, when your hands drop, when you feel moral and physical fatigue. At such moments it is important not to give up. After all, for any defeat, you need to go forward, correct and sort out the mistakes in the port hall with the coach, and improve the further training process. For example, I carefully study the video of rival fights. Knowledge of competitive tactics is the key to future success. The battle has begun – and the athlete, if he wants to win, has no right to make a mistake.

Dmitry admitted that he will remember tournaments in China all his life. Acquaintance with this great power made a strong impression on the naftan, despite the fact that he attended competitions in Brazil, Thailand, Serbia, Turkey, Lithuania, Russia and other countries. For the opportunity to participate in international level tournaments, the athlete is grateful to the administration

Kickboxing Tutorial


Start training! What prevents you from starting training right away? You can immediately bring a bunch of reasons: there is no coach, place, equipment, sparring partner, the necessary shells. But are they a real barrier to training ?! No, this is just a myth or “excuses”, as you wish.

If you recall, then most of the martial arts were invented by simple poor people in order to have at least some self-defense and learn to defend their truth. And they did not always have enough money for food, not to mention special equipment and equipment for the development of combat skills, which at that time did not even exist. But they had excellent motivation and a great desire to live better.

The main thing is to have the desire to train. And the means and methods for this will be in your head. Or on the expanses of the omnipotent Internet (for example, in this article).

I want to dispel the myth right away that kickboxing cannot be comprehended on its own. When you train at home, you can very well learn to fight, understand the basics of kickboxing and get a decent physical development. For this, you do not need a super trainer and state-of-the-art equipment (unless, of course, you do not strive to perform professionally in the ring). Your desire and detailed tutorial will be enough.

All the equipment needed for training is not difficult to build from improvised means. I already wrote about the boxing bag, and today I’ll tell you what other kickboxing equipment you can do with your own hands.

It is advisable to make corners rounded with a jigsaw. On it we put a piece of foam, rags, felt, mat or a cut off part of an old mattress. It is possible in several layers, the thickness should be at least 18 cm. Next, we tighten the whole thing with leather, leatherette dermantine or tarpaulin.

How to Choose Boxing Gloves

Choose boxing gloves. '

Boxing is one of the most beloved sports in Russia. Despite the fact that it originated in England, many Russians consider it to be exclusively a “native” occupation. A guy who is engaged in boxing will be able to fend for himself and his loved ones, he will gain an athletic figure, strength, endurance, stamina.

But if you decide to send your child to the boxing section, then choosing a good coach is not enough to start a young boxer. How to choose the right equipment for the future boxer? Moreover, you never sat down to deal with such things, and your eyes just run away from possible options. You should not buy the cheapest, or the most expensive gloves – the price is far from an indicator of quality.

Few people know that the main task of boxing gloves is not to protect the athlete’s hand, and not so much to protect him from the blow of his opponent. They do not allow you to tightly clench your fist so that the blow is not so strong. For example, everlast gloves, created on the basis of professional sports models, which have become a real bestseller in many sports stores. In them you cannot tightly clench your fist, and to strike with such a hand so hard as to kill the enemy is simply impossible.

You need to start your choice with a large store with a wide range of goods of interest to us. In no case do you need to buy gloves as a gift, as this thing is purely individual, and should ideally fit your hand. Buying them for yourself, try on several options. Of course, it is preferable to box with gloves that are made of expensive materials, they allow air to pass through well, absorb moisture well, so that the athlete’s hand always remains dry.
