Mstislav Zapashny "was born in the sawdust" - is usually said about hereditary circus artists, those whose first impressions associated with the smell of the stables, light projectors, triumphant music, applause, debilitating many hours of rehearsals. Zapashny - now a child of the arena. His circus pedigree he elevates to 1882. This date refers to a circus Encyclopedia, telling about a clown and eccentric musical Carla Tomsone, speaking under the pseudonym of Milton. This man was the ancestor of the famous dynasty.

Mother Mstislav Zapashny - Lydia Karlovna, daughter of Milton's clown, as a fifteen-year girl who famously rode a horse, twisting somersaults, juggled, played the piano. His father, Mikhail, was on the arena greenhorn. Before entering the arena, he worked as a longshoreman in Eyske and was famous for huge power. Fate has prepared him fabulous changes. Once, it was after the Civil War, he was discovered by the legendary Ivan Poddubnyi and invited him to try himself as a fighter. In those days, when the French Championships were fighting in the circus, Ukrainian surname Zapashny no use for the posters, and Michael left the arena under the name of Eaglet.

But Michael did not suit the simple demonstration of physical strength, and the young fighter was to acquire other circus genres. Together with a friend George Melchenko he created a number of power acrobats in traditional style at the time gladiators. In the posters, they were called "Brothers Miltons".

But Gorbachev himself resolutely did not want his children to devote themselves Manege. He sought to give each of them a good education and decent profession. To permanently unable to carry a family with him, he bought a small house and put the family in Leningrad. Here Mstislav found war. Father and older brother went to the front.
