Thanks Mikhail for your tuition and guidance in knife-throwing on Sunday! We had a great time and will continue to practice and improve. This is undeniably an interesting sport, which fine tunes your cognitive skills, forces you to focus and lets your natural instincts kick in. Apart from being fun, to the point of being addictive, it's really relaxing, as you become almost meditative. And, I was impressed that no trees were hurt in the process! (We used a dead tree in Sokolniki as our target.) For anyone interested, it's worth persevering if you don't get it right in the first 5 minutes. Like everything, it takes a little practice, before you can throw like a pro! I was able to get the hang of it by the end of my first lesson.
