Due to our powerful achievements in the international sports arena and our credibility among the international community, we managed to win the right to host the World Hand-to-Hand Combat Championship in Ukraine.

Hand-to-hand combat is a comprehensive combat system, the technical arsenal of which includes punches and kicks, throws, painful and suffocating techniques, as well as work against various types of weapons. This sport has been changing and improving for a long time and has moved from the position of a special sport in the training program of the Armed Forces and police to a national sport, which athletes of all ages are engaged in today.

 

During hand-to-hand combat training, athletes work out dangerous life situations, prepare for real conflicts, teach how to behave in stressful situations and get out of difficult situations with a cold mind. They also conduct self-defense classes. At each lesson, willpower is tested. This is also the case of fighting your own fears, which cannot be overcome without meeting them face to face.

 

Hand-to-hand combat is included in the Unified Sports classification of Ukraine in non-Olympic sports as an Independent Sport, which allows hand-to-hand athletes to receive well-deserved sports titles. Every year it becomes even more popular as a sport not only among the security forces and military personnel, but also as a national sport.

 

Hand-to-hand combat is prestigious and spectacular. This is strength and protection. This is pride and safety. This is a unifying sport! And it has every chance to become a national sport that will unite not only the sports community, but also the whole country.
