Along with other sports, special attention in our country is paid to the development of martial arts. Great work is being done to train masters of unarmed self-defence and combat unarmed self-defence. This sport is on the list of international competitions planned to hold in our country.
Unarmed self-defence (sambo) took a worthy place in the programme of the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, held in the Turkmen capital in 2017. The competitions showed that this sport is of great interest both on the international arena and in our country. The achievements of the Turkmen unarmed self-defence sportsmen at the Asian Games-2017 became a triumph of the policy pursued by Turkmenistan in the field of sports.
