ONE Championship Double World Champion Anatoly Malykhin visited the OGF4 Academy to inspire the next generation of athletes.
The OGF4 Academy, which is a community-based project launched by the Fight for the Future Foundation and OG Fightwear, is situated in the heart of the notorious Khlong Toei slums in Bangkok, Thailand.
The project offers young members of the local community free MMA and Martial Arts training, and provides structured pathways to education and career opportunities from the practice of martial arts and the support of its community.
There were many excited faces as Anatoly Malykhin came to visit the OGF4 Academy and generously share his time and knowledge with a group of young children from the local community.
Participants had the very special opportunity to engage in fun classes and exercises with the World Champion, and were each given a unique OG Fightwear x Anatoly Malykhin training t-shirt for the occasion.
A nutritious meal was generously provided by Rallis restaurant, and there were plenty of opportunities for everyone to have photos taken with the championship belt.
The current ONE Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight World Champion from Russia has worked with OG Fightwear and Fight for the Future Foundation on several occasions, recently hosting a ‘Nxt-Gen’ day for local schools at his newly opened Dobrynya Academy in Phuket, Thailand.
A huge thank you to Anatoly, and to all the partners and sponsors of the OGF4 Academy as we aim to create a brighter future for this community.
