Deepest Monk at World Championship

In September 2019 the world championship of deep diving, freediving, will be held in Nice, France. 

https://aida-wc2019.com 

Many champions of various countries will join and confront themselves to their chosen depth in 3 different disciplines: finning, pulling and swimming down and up... 

The Monk Kosho, aka the Deepest Monk, has been selected to participate in this legendary championship. It is a major opportunity for him and again, this challenge will be a complete success with your support.

"It's about depth... I feel responsible for showing an example" 


Selection is one good step, true, and I'm really happy I nicely improved my skills during 2018. I could achieve deeper dives in all disciplines. Also, along training sessions, I could bring many Freedivers and local people to gather for meditation times and reflections about a more responsible way of living on Earth. I sincerely believe that was a great piece of positive work. 

Without your help this adventure of 2018 wouldn't have been possible, clearly. Thanx again to all those of you who supported my last campaign, the Deepest Monk Project.

I deeply and sincerely feel blessed by your trust and heartwarming support.

Pain and gain... 

Training, travels and registration fees have a cost as everyone can imagine. 

Educated and raised as a serious and authentic Zen monk since my very young adulthood, I'm very very careful how I use money and often find solutions for not using it. 

Working as Freediving instructor and safety diver in Sinaï, father of a beautifully sweet daughter of 10 years old, husband of a great and dedicated working woman, there's not much left of finances to get into challenges which require an important investment of money such as international Freediving competitions. So yes, I wish you will help me again on that one. 

Swiss Depth Championship in Zurich... The travel begins! 

Being selected to represent Switzerland, I must participate to the Swiss Depth Championship which will be held in Zurich's lake on 24th of August 2019.

To make it safe, it is needed for me to arrive a little before in order to discover, train and get in harmony with these waters I've never dove into. Everybody says it's dark, cold and certainly not salty... 

The journey to World Championship

This is where the journey will begin: Flying from Sharm el-sheikh to Zurich, training, competing and then move to Nice for the same program starting 31 of August. 

It will be intense, eventually hard, but I train very consistently for all this to be a great success on many different levels. 

Sure, I need your financial support to pay for the flights, accommodation and competition fees, hoping I can manage to find sponsors which will provide the needed freediving equipment.

All that is expensive and what follows would be the approximate costs for this adventure:

Flight ............................ 850€ 
Freediving equipment ......... 780€
Medical certificates ............... 70€
Insurances ................................. 340€
SUSV licence ............................. 120€
Communication ........................ 430€
Accommodation Zurich ......... 250€
Local transportation ................ 90€
Trainings ..................................... 120€
Comp. Fee Zurich ...................... 100€
Bus/Train Switzerland-Nice ...250€
Accommodation Nice .............. 350€
Local transportation ...................80€
Trainings .................................... 150€
Comp. Fee Nice .......................... 850€
Food/Drinks ................................ 350€
Extra unexpected costs ...........270€
Previous training in Egypt..... 500€
Total ........................................ 5950€ (ouch!) 

Well, let's wish I can make it with less than that :)

Faithfully, I will accept all signs and moves of generosity. To thank you and show my gratitude, I will be mentioning you into social networks posts (unless you wish to stay anonymous) about these events and believe I will be available always to send the lift back to you in a Deep Zen way.
