This is the past that we are proud of and that we intended to credit and follow. However we are now faced with a different and ever-changing reality. The growing use of electronic devices  - computers, tablets and video games – is a reality. The e-Games and its tournaments are growing exponentially, and with that the number of competitors that trains/plays several hours a day under circumstances that are far from good. All these modifications force us to follow new trends, and to try to seek solutions to minimize the discomfort associated to it. We rely on the teachings of the past, and with the adaptability of our group to help the generations to come.
