We HIGHLIGHT THE ISSUES facing young sportsmen/women in their drive to become WORLD CLASS.

We aim to be the LEADING VOICE in the growth of Combat Sports on the AFRICAN CONTINENT.

 

With us, it’s always #Raw&Uncut!

 

“So I’m lookin’ up more
‘Cause I know what I’m up for
‘Cause we need a change
And I’m startin’ an uproar

Yeah we startin’ a ruckus (ha, ha)”

                                                  Ruckus: Konata Small

HERE'S WHAT WE FOCUS ON

MEDIA

From our Sports Shows on Community Radio, to our twice-weekly TV Shows focusing on the Fite Sports and eGaming Communities.

We showcase the young Sportsmen/Women, the Coaches,
the Gamers and the Brands within the #PunchyKicky Community.

EVENTS

From innovative conceptualisation,
event management and event hosting,
we offer young sportsmen/women the opportunity to showcase their skills and talents.

Its only an experience once you feel it!

OPINION

The work of an Opinionista is very easy!
We risk very little, yet offer judgement
over the work and skill of others.

Highlighting the issues is controversial and often deemed negative, but it’s the only way to make the world uncomfortable.
