The Warriors Realm is a Hexagon. Eight metres in diameter with a seven foot high chain mesh fence, this heavily reinforced cage has only one gate. Come and watch as these champion Warriors battle it out in the Hexagon using pure strength and combat skills.
Each Warrior uses a blend of modern and traditional fighting techniques called Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). MMA is sometimes referred to as the Triathlon of fighting. With it's practitioners having to be equally skilled in stand up striking, clinching, takedowns/throws and submission wrestling. Bitter rivals will meet on the Sunshine Coast to settle an old score when Melbourne's George Sotiropoulos challenges the Sunshine Coasts own Kyle 'KO' Noke for the Australian Welterweight Title. Don't miss out on this opportunity to watch as these ultimate fighting matches are fought live at Lake Kawana Community Centre this February. The warm up fights are a mix of 2 and 3 rounds of 5 minutes, with the main fight being 5 rounds of 5 minutes. Each fight is highly regulated and MMA fights are one of the safest and exciting combat extreme sports. May the best man win!
Come and support these extremely honorable Warriors as they show their softer side in an effort to raise $50,000AUS for SCARS. The Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge is a non profit organization that houses up to two hundred dogs and cats at any one time. The money raised by WRRF will go towards building a Kennel complex for SCARS elderly dogs. These are the dogs that are unlikely to find a new home at this late stage of their lives.

WRRF Background Information
The sport first grabbed the public's attention in 1993 in the United States when the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) tournament was held. People had always wondered would a boxer beat a black belt in Karate, could a wrestler beat a Kung Fu guy or what about a street fighter? These dynamic tournaments were the result.
Warriors Realm founder Shane Balmer initially became involved in martial arts as a teenager when he first saw Bruce Lee leap across the television screen. Shane enrolled in Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu classes to emulate his childhood hero, before expanding his fighting-style horizons. "I studied the traditional martial art, bodybuilding, worked as a doorman and spent years in the RAAF police unit, before starting up my own large security company" said Shane Balmer.
"I then started sparring with Mick Green, who was competing in a few local MMA tournaments before he went to Japan to fight in a Pancrase event. Through training with Mick, I got into Mixed Martial Arts and then starting running my own competitions and the rest is history!" continued Mr. Balmer.
Although only in Australia for a short time, MMA Extreme Fighting events are taking over from the popularity of Boxing and Muay Thai kickboxing as the most exciting, realistic combat event for spectators. Some of Australia's home grown fighters have successfully competed on the international stage and the sport has a huge following of aspiring up and coming fighters throughout the country.
Warriors Realm debuted in Australia in September 2004 with an awesome line up that boasted international fighters and headlining the main event was 3 x Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion and UFC Veteran Roberto 'Spider' Traven who competed against Australia's most successful MMA fighter and the only Australian ever to win in the UFC Elvis 'The King of Rock n Rumble' Sinosic. This was the first time two UFC Veterans had ever fought in Australia.
Warriors Realm continues to produce fantastic shows bringing some of the wildest overseas fighters to our shores to compete against Australia's best. Warriors Realm reality Fighting Events bring together the ultimate combat combined with theatrics and entertainment.
Our motto at Warriors Realm is 'Keep It Real' and this is displayed by the high level of sportsmanship shown by competitors and staff. This is the Real Deal! No Holds Barred!
