By the decision of the International Council of Professional Fighting Rati Tsiteladze has been awarded the gold medal of Universal Fighter 2008. Tsiteladze is a worthy representative of Georgian Full-Contact Karate and gained his greatest recognition in 2008: World Champion under K-1 rules in the 78 kg weight category, Caucasus Champion under Kyokushin Karate rules in the super heavy and free weight categories, National Champion of Georgia under Kyokushin Karate rules in the free weight category, National Champion of Georgia under Kyng-fu Sanda rules in the free category, Best Fighter of the national Professional Full-Contact Fight League of Georgia Geo Fight and Chief Instructor of the International Budo Sport Federation of Georgia. Rati Tsiteladze is also a representative of Tbilisi State Scientific University’s Full-Contact Martial Arts Programme and Chief Instructor of Neko Ryu Karate.


GT spoke to Rati Tsiteladze and the independent expert on sportsmen’s physical and functional training matters, Lika Megrelishvili.


Rati Tsiteladze: As you see I was put in a golden cage. After receiving such a prestigious award I am obliged to bear a big responsibility for my country, people, Neko Ryu Karate and my personal trainer, Kakhaber Markozashvili. I have no way out. I have to fight for championships alone. Thanks to God I am ready for it.


Lika Megrelishvili: As a non professional I would say first of all that I am happy that my country has as courageous a sportsman as Rati. As an expert I would state that due to his physical and functional training level Rati Tsiteladze is a high standard sportsman. Rati has achieved the best result ever; I mean he gained success in three totally different fighting systems, K-1, Kyokushin and Sanda Kung-fu. To be more objective, it should be mentioned that Kakhaber Markozashvili supported him morally. I remember him saying these words from the Hagakure, the book of the Samurai: “No matter what the circumstances might be, one should be of the mind to win. One should be holding the first spear to strike. Even though you have put your life on the line, there is nothing to be done when the situation doesn’t go as planned…”


Rati Tsiteladze: I would add this: one will not break through to the enemy with theory. Directness is most important, when in front of the lion’s den…


Lika Megrelishvili: That’s why you are the universal fighter. If you start planning possibilities at the time of fighting, you’ll end up with a fiasco. You’ll be left powerless even if you were ready to lay down your life.


Rati Tsiteladze: You can’t judge and then defeat. When you are left with the lion, don’t plan anything, go ahead.

Leaders of NATO countries meeting in Wales this week face two utterly different tasks. The first, much more complex yet all too familiar, is the mission to halt Russia from expanding into the former Soviet periphery. The second is a short-term mission to contain Islamic State expansion in the Middle East.
