OG Fightwear and Fight for the Future Foundation held it’s latest Nxt-Gen Day at Dobrynya Martial Arts Academy in Phuket, Thailand.
The Nxt-Gen events aim to provide opportunities for children from underprivileged backgrounds through a day of martial arts classes led by some of the world’s top professionals - promoting the fun and discipline of martial arts while supporting local communities.
The latest Nxt-Gen instalment featured an impressive line of martial arts athletes, including current ONE Championship Double World Champion Anatoly Malykhin and current WBC Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Bárbara Aguiar.
These champions and many other athletes and coaches in Phuket dedicated their time and expertise to inspire the young participants, providing them with an unforgettable experience and imparting valuable lessons about martial arts and sportsmanship.
The event took place at Anatoly Malykhin’s newly opened Dobrynya Academy. The state-of-the-art facility provided an ideal setting for the event, offering a perfect training environment for the group of over 50 children.
Participants at the event had the unique opportunity to train alongside the world-class athletes, receiving hands-on guidance and inspiration from the best in the industry. The day was filled with exciting demonstrations, interactive workshops, and engaging classes - allowing the children to immerse themselves in the world of martial arts and discover their own potential. Food was also generously donated for the event by MK Restaurants.
This marks the third successful Nxt-Gen Day. The first was held in 2022 and featured ONE Championship World Champions Anatoly Malykhin and Allycia Rodrigues, who both participated in a day of interactive classes held at Nova Uniao Phuket for a group of over 20 local schoolchildren.
In early 2023 OG Fightwear and Fight for the Future Foundation organised its second event, this time partnering with the Baan Nokkamin Foundation to support a group of over 20 orphaned, displaced and underprivileged children in Bangkok.
A huge thank you to Dobrynya Academy, Anatoly, and all the athletes and coaches for a very special day, and to all the partners of the Nxt-Gen Events as we strive to create a brighter future for the next generation.
