My name is Lex, owner and head coach of Ciocana Combat Sambo. I need to offer a huge statement of thanks to all our loyal students and followers who have reached out during this Covid-19 crisis. As I write this, New York City is on lock down, and our gym closed until the state mandate is lifted. This can be potentially devastating for us. Now that our gym is closed, new enrollments will drop to zero, workshops and seminars will cease, stunt training will cease, and current students will start to drop off.
We are honored to have people visit us from around the United States and world; and even more proud that we never charge visitors to our city who choose to spend time training with us. Equally, our Breakfall Studios' open training for stunt performers has always been free, and has become a stop for many performers while working or visiting NYC . We have always believed in providing support, education and community building with our peers at no, or little cost to them. During this crisis, I am humbly asking you who have benefitted from our facility, training, free instructional videos and other aspects of what we do at Ciocana Combat Sambo s, to consider lending a hand now if you are able.
