MEET THE TEAM

Battle arena started as a regional show in the UK in 2009. Over the years we have built an unparalleled platform across many international locations selling out wherever we go.

We adhere to two firm principles:

Matchmaking discipline: Nobody likes to see a one-sided contest; therefore, we thoroughly research and skilfully match our athletes before booking them on our cards. we have longstanding relationships with gyms and clubs internationally, as they are confident and comfortable in the knowledge that we will provide the right opponents and opportunities for their fighters.

Safety: Our protocols are borne from the experience of running over 50 events. Fighter safety is of paramount importance. We follow the rules set out by ISKA. In addition to this, we work in conjunction with our Close Protection partners to ensure that all patrons enjoy our events in a safe and calm environment.
