“Love Fighting, Hate Violence” Brighton University


EBC are proud to be working with this project to research combat sports and their place within society.


Love Fighting Hate Violence (LFHV) is a campaign aiming to raise awareness of the important moral difference between sport-based combat, and violence.

It seeks to encourage practitioners and fans of martial arts and combat sports to reflect on this distinction, and to encourage various forms of anti-violence action within and through their different disciplines.

We are currently in the process of formulating a coaching toolkit to help instructors deliver values-based teaching through martial arts and combat sports, focusing on methods for teaching young people about respect and consent.
