-What is the first rule of the Fight Club?
-Don't talk about the Fight Club.
But, for you dear ones Russian Lovers, we will risk breaking that rule. Pay attention, in Russia a new fighting modality has emerged, where only the bravest dare to fight, it's about Strelka
What is Strelka?
They are street fighting tournaments, in which any person (even if it is not a martial arts practitioner) can fight each other. No matter the place: beaches, streets, sports centers, etc. in Strelka, the participants face each other wherever. With little protection and with great courage, they show their courage and courtesy in the battle, delighting the public.
Now you're wondering ... Who created all this? Are they illegal fights?
The project Strelka (which means arrow in Russian) started at the 2011 in St. Petersburg, fruit of the idea of Greg Apinyan, that with less than U.S. dollar 400 organized the first combat of this discipline. Today, Strelka is a success and controls much of the mixed martial arts market in Russia.
And they are not illegal fights, on the contrary, they are endorsed by the North American company of martial arts Tron. In addition, before making the fights the judges make an exhaustive analysis of the abilities of the fighters and their mental state, so that there are no problems and the combat is as close as possible.
The strong point of these wrestling tournaments is the spirit and courage shown by the fighters, who impress the spectators. Most are not professional fighters but ordinary people, who want to demonstrate their combat skills to the public.
Unlike MMA and boxing, Strelka it is much more realistic and unpredictable, the combat takes unexpected turns, and the winner becomes loser in a single instant.
Another of the strengths of these tournaments is that you can see them in their canal de Youtube. I leave here one of the most famous matches of Strelka With almost 5 millions of views:
