Our club, “Fighting Global Team”, was founded by Vladimiros Nazarenko along with Anastasia Pontika as head coach.

We are an active member of the Hellenic Kickboxing & MMA Federations, have an experienced 5-member trainers team with a 20-year course in martial arts & fighting sports, a significant number of athletes / members and we offer classes  for adults, teenagers and children.

Our club is certified by the Hellenic General Secretariat of Sports, with ID No ΧΓ50.

OUR VISION

Our vision is the creation of a sports club in downtown Athens, a city that is a global center, that promotes sportsmanship and social responsibility equally.

A club that advocates the principle of fair play, culture, local action, that participates in social activities contributing to municipal projects.

Our goal is to act in a way that eventually will inspire more sports associations to create and offer similar kind of activities to their members as well as to their local communities.

OUR GOALS

During this era of relentless competition, we are experiencing a lack of goal setting, a moral absence and a challenge of ideals.
By trying to work towards the athletic and physical development of our younger and older athletes alike, we have focused to the following:

  • Promoting the value of personal effort by making necessary sacrifices.
  • Giving emphasis to the everyday struggle that we, older and younger people have to go through.
  • Fighting against the use of any form of addiction that serves as distraction from other issues, and helping people who suffer from addictions.
  • Offering alternative activities to the culture of consumerism and physical sluggishness.
  • Promoting equality, respect, and group activities regardless of age, gender, race, education, social status.

Using physical and mental wellness as our starting point, we are strengthening our efforts towards achieving teamwork using combat sports.

That way we give the chance to our athletes to test their limits, face their fears and through that to achieve their true potential.

“Fighting Global Team” trainers are working as a collective that aims on teaching combat sports and contributes to the improvement of physical, mental and psychological health.

kids classes

Through our kids programs we are aiming on a well-rounded education around mental, psychological and physical self-awareness. We seek to provide our students with the necessary tools they need to face their everyday challenges, to boost their self-confidence, to set and achieve their goals and how to protect themselves and others from bullying or any kind of malicious behavior that they might encounter.
