Fight For Peace (FFP) is a boxing and martial arts charity with an academy in London. It originally opened in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as a response to young people becoming involved in drug fractions. The organisation designed a methodology, using boxing, to help young people fulfil their potential. The idea is not just to help young people develop as boxers but also offer them assistance in getting back into education or employment, amongst other things.   

FFP has a UK Alumni Scheme, whereby they have been given funding to support local boxing clubs across the country to help them adapt the FFP methodology to their local context. They offer a one-week training course in London where they will all their methodology and tools. Additionally, FFP will offer 10 months support to local clubs to adapt the model to their respective communities.

To date, FFP have used the programme to achieve the following:

  • Last year FFP helped local clubs raise over £1,000,000.
  • 81% of boxing clubs have added or strengthened boxing and martial arts programmes by integrating personal development and upskilling their coaches.
  • 95% have added or strengthened the services they offer to young people based on FFP methodology.

There is no financial cost in participating in the Fight For Peace alumni programme.

What kinds of clubs are FFP looking for?

  • Clubs who work with young people who are involved in or affected by violence.
  • Been open for at least two years.
  • Must be able to dedicate a senior member of staff to lead the relationship with Fight For Peace.
