Chief Master Reza Valinezhad

Welcome to our web pages.   It was our pleasure to begin our affiliation with the IMHF by having Grand Master Victor M. Cushing visit Iran from 18 MAR 2005 - 26 MAR 2005.  During that time we had intensive training sessions both in group seminars and in small semi-private training.   We look forward to a long relationship with the IMHF.

It wasn't all work, time for tea in the mountains.


It wasn't all work, time for lunch in Nour.


It wasn't all work, a holiday trip to the falls.


The trip is over, and speaking for myself, I enjoyed the visit very much......Vic Cushing
