Bychiy Island on the Neva River has long been home to a children's ecological school and student yacht club. It is now being developed into a private, $100 million judo mega-complex, headed by Arkady Rotenberg, President Vladimir Putin's childhood sparring partner. Putin, a black belt in judo, serves as the club's honorary president. Image by Misha Friedman. Russia, 2015.
