Fight for Cambodia invests in people who want to make a difference in their lives through martial arts. Gentle Strength Wins.

The Reason

Fight for Cambodia invests in young men and women who are empowering themselves through martial arts and education. During the Khmer Rouge and subsequent civil war period about 30% of the population, including the majority of professionals, artists, and performers were killed. Martial Artists in particular were targeted. FFC is partnering with Selapak in Phnom Penh and head coach CHAN Rothana. Rothana grew up in the refugee camp learning the ancient art of Yuthakun Khom from his father and is passing that knowledge to people today as a coach and mentor. CHAN Rothana is currently a ONE Championship MMA athlete and instructor at Selapak, Phnom Penh.

The Mission

Fight for Cambodia's mission is to invest in people who are making a better life for themselves, their families, and their Country through education, combat-sports and traditional arts. FFC and our community of supporters provide strategic thinking, equipment, clothing, shoes, training opportunities, and education to people who are putting their whole heart and soul into their future.

In particular, women's opportunities are limited and FFC is committed to supporting female athletes who have chosen to compete as a form of self expression and empowerment. Vy Srey Khouch and her younger sister Vy Srey Chai are two athletes leading our program.

The Investment

Fight for Cambodia, Inc., is a tax deductible 501(c)(3) charitable corporation set up to invest in and support young men and women empowering themselves. Please join us by making an investment through a donation, liking and following our FaceBook page, or visiting Phnom Penh to train with the team. A little bit of money goes a long way in Cambodia so any amount is powerful. As with anyone facing a challenge, knowing people support them adds to their courage and spirit! Thank you.
