Donetsk Regional Hand-to-Hand Combat Federation

The Donetsk Regional Hand-to-Hand Combat Federation (DRHCF) was registered in 2002. Andrii Alosha became its President, and DMS Financial and Industrial Corporation became its permanent partner in 2006. Soon thereafter, the DRHCF managed to win the title of the best federation in Ukraine and the right to be represented by the biggest number of sportsmen at the international competitions in the national team. The Federation’s tasks were to develop the sports talent of its members, to recover their health and ensure proper preparation for the competitions, including at the training camp located on the Black Sea coast, as well as to develop the team spirit and organise the sportsmen’s leisure. 

The members of the DRHCF won lots of prizes at the national, European and world tournaments from 2006 to 2014. 

In 2007, the Federation launched the Knowledge, Health and Power Programme: establishment of free of charge hand-to-hand combat clubs at the general schools of the Region of Donetsk was initiated by Andrii Alosha. The children were trained by the masters of sports and hand-to-hand combat and martial art champions of Ukraine, Europe and the world. Owing to the financial support by DMS Corporation, all the school clubs had all the necessary sports equipment and protective gear. Also, the qualifying tournaments giving the talented children a chance to join the Federation were also conducted at the schools. 

The Donetsk Regional Hand-to-Hand Combat Federation supported by DMS Corporation kept expanding the territory of the Knowledge, Health and Power Programme: there were free of charge hand-to-hand combat clubs in dozens of schools in Donetsk and the Region of Donetsk, with more than 1,000 in there.
