Colleagues, I want to share my joy with you: http://ironmind.com/...d_Red_Nail.html

Here is the video of the cert:



I would like to thank my familiy, all my friends and teammates, "Iron Grip" community, who rooted for me.
I am endlessly grateful to David Horne, David Wigren, Jonathan Umpherville and Hannes Kainz for guiding me in training. And big thanks to my official referee Maxim Morozov for allocating his time.


Here are the pics of me and my friends:

Wow huge congratulations! I believe you are the second person ever to do it reverse, I think rex hubbard was the only other one.

 

Great picture also, forearm looks huge.

That's probably the best Reverse Red nail cert ever! Huge reverse kink, looked way past 40 degrees already after the first hit! Congratulations on an excellent cert my friend!
