Hi all, there is a 'Vegan Fight Fest' happening in Warsaw, Poland on Saturday 9th November 2013. The fest will have various self-defence / Martial arts / MMA groups doing seminars as well as a panel discussion at the end with all those involved - discussing veganism and training. My own club http://www.urbanescrima.com will be running one of the seminars. Here is a flyer for the event, apologies, its in Polish.

Hi all, just a quick update, yes the event went well. It was great to train with a large amount of vegans as well as all instructors being vegan. They plan to expand the event next year and to invite more vegan martial artists / fitness people to participate. Here is a short write up that we done for our club http://www.urbanescrima.com/urban-escrima-in-warsaw-poland/

The best part of the day was a questions and answers session at the end of the day. This was held in a vegan cafe, there were so many people, lots couldn't even get in. A well known Polish vegan bodybuilder gave a great lecture and then we answered various questions about our diets / training. It has to be said that a lot of the people were not vegan and so hopefully this opened up new ideas to many people thinking of going vegan.

The group organising this is: http://www.veganworkout.org.pl
Photos / videos to follow :)

Thanks

fantastic to hear it went well, hope this inspires similar events in other countries.

Where would this work too? germany? UK? but then again, wouldnt have thought it would work in poland either, just takes a few individuals who pull it together and nail it.

Inspiring!
