(en) Poland, The 10th edition of the Freedom Fighters league - relation rozbrat.org
Fri, 29 Jun 2018 08:31:24 +0300
On 16/17/06.2018 Freedom Fighters tenth league took place. We got 4 events in total that
brought combat sports enthusiasts from countries such as Germany, England, Belgium,
Ukraine and from all over Poland. The event got opened by Yoga workshop intended to put
pressure on relax muscles of martial arts trainees. Number of them risk injuries and
overtraining so the practice could reduce those complaints. In the evening a lecture of
Olaf Susicki about the carbohydrates in athlete's diet took place, so it was another
opportunity to extend knowledge. Despite it was held after the fights (also the
lecturer's) there was enough of students. ---- There was also enough of league
participants. 15 fights took place - 1 boxing, 2 BJJ no-gi, 9 K-1 Rules and 3 Muaythai.
There was full variety of the fights - we had beginners and advanced fighters with the
record of few/dozen of fights, junior fight and veterans, light and heavy. There were
decision verdicts, but knockouts as well (5 fights in total, 1 BJJ no-gi out of them).
Around 200 audience could see combat sports in all its glory.
Later at night New Order DJ's squad integrated all that have come to the event.
Next day a traditional (5th) muay thai seminar with well known master Peter Irving took
place. More than 20 people attended to train, few fighters from the previous day included.
The 3 hour-long seminar was about teeps and roundhouse kicks and traditional Muaythai
defences against them - catches. First, Pete teached about including a defence factor in
every attack, for example inconvenient body posture, hip rotation etc. Then he showed few
ways to catch the kicks and counter-attacks - some easier and safe ways, but also more
complex and intended to cause more harm to the opponent, like in pro fights.
As a organiser's collective we'd like to officially thank: No Defeats crew from Wroclaw
for borrowing us their DIY ring for another time. Judges for fair verdicts. Zemsta for not
letting anyone hungry from the event. Of course all the fighters for courage to step in
the ring, leave whole heart and a little bit of heatlh there. And of course Peter Irving
for great referee job and awesome seminar.
Because we had round number this year, few numbers. We were having our leagues in 4
different locations in Poznan. We had 111 fights in total. 111! There was also 10 seminars
with fighters fighting for promotions like UFC, Bellator, KSW, Cage Warriors and legendary
Lumpini stadium in Bangkok. We are meeting point for combat sports enthusiasts from all
over Europe. We've organise a fully equipped gym with 15 hours of trainings a week for
free, and it's open all the time for people's need.
Welcome everyone in participation in Freedom Fighters. Power!
