Iranian Sports community experienced a huge revolution yesterday, as the biggest and brightest martial arts superstar, Ernesto Hoost, visited Iran. He is called “Mister Perfect”, which all martial arts experts agree that it really suits his character.
Mr. Hoost had been invited to Iran by Iranian Martial Arts Federation through Dr. Abedi. He organized the whole stay of Mr Perfect in Iran and did a very fine job with coordinating a smooth ceremony in his honor.
The chairman of Iranian Martial Arts Federation, Mr Mohammad Noohi together with IKF Asia representative and PIMAF president, Shihan Amir Mosadegh, welcomed Grand Master Ernesto Hoost in Tehran and hosted two seminars and a training session for Iranian fans.
Shihan Amir Mosadegh who spent the most time with Mr. Hoost, describes his experience:
“Since early times when I watched K-1 videos and followed the matches closely, one fighter has always been my maestro and my mentor. I want to talk about Mr Perfect. He has always defeated his opponents with utmost power and strength. I have always dreamt of training with him. Because I have always believed that there has never been a greater and mightier fighter than Mr Perfect. I am very pleased that with his presence in Iran and with the support and cooperation of IKF Asia, we were all given the opportunity to learn and train with him.”
He added: “During these training sessions, I realised that not only Mr Hoost posseses superior techniques and power, he is also a very modest and warm hearted human being. He attentively attended two large seminars and training sessions and spoke with and educated the Iranian fighters.”
On the last night of his stay in Iran, a memorable ceremony was held for Mr. Ernesto Hoost and Master Laurent Daussy, who is one of the prominant Karate Coaches in Neterlands. Also present was Mr Heino Heiwegen, Mr Hoost’s Team Manager and Mr Mohsen Ahmadi, Secretary of Iranian Martial Arts Federation.
That was a very memorable night for the Iranian martial arts family.
Shihan Amir Mosadegh has a final meeting with Mr. Hoost and his programs manager about IKF and kickboxing in Asia and some exchanges were made about future cooperations between IKF Asia and Mr. Hoost’s Organization.
