Our goal is simply to give developing martial artists an opportunity to gain valuable sparring experience and share knowledge.  Ideal preparation for national gradings, full contact freestyle kickboxing / Thai boxing / Sanda / Sanshou / MMA competitions.

Judges comprise of  instructors from any style present on the day. All fighters will have to help act as ‘corner-men/women’ for others fighters, (typically shadowing experienced corner-men). Sparring is done in a friendly open atmosphere for students of martial arts.

In just 3 years, graduates of the league are picking up National Titles in BCCMA sanctioned competitions and events.
