***Calling all NZ amateur fighters wanting to represent our country***

NZ has punched way above our weight in the amateur IMMAF championships bringing back medals every year since it started 4 years ago.
Including 3 gold medals in the last 2 championships.

...

If you are wanting to register to qualify for a chance to compete and earn your spot in the team please get your coaches to private message this page by April 13th 2018.

There are several tournaments this year that NZ will compete in with the Asia championships in China in September and the world championships in Bahrain in November.

Qualifiers will be held at the NZ Combat Sports expo held at the north shore events centre on the weekend of June 9th 2018.
