Peacefighters take to the ring
A MARTIAL ARTS DEMONSTRATION BY THE PEACEFIGHTERS – ON A BOXING RING AT THE PLACE DES NATIONS, GENEVA ! Geneva -
The PEACEFIGHTERS Association was formally launched at the UNICEF European HQ in Geneva on 17 April 2008. The launch was welcomed by Ireland's President, Mrs. Mary McAleese, as well as by members of the diplomatic community, including the British Ambassador to Switzerland and Swiss dignitaries. The PEACEFIGHTERS Association was set up with the aim of promoting peace and respect through sport.
The Association is the brainchild of Carl Emery (Switzerland) and Billy Murray (Northern Ireland), both former World Champions in Kickboxing. It brings together martial arts sportsmen and women from Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Switzerland for inter-community sessions and international events (competitions, demonstrations, training sessions, etc). The activities of the PEACEFIGHTERS are focused more particularly on disadvantaged children and youth.
In addition to the Association’s founders, Carl Emery and Billy Murray, world renowned fighters Gary HAMILTON (Belfast, Northern Ireland), professional lightweight kickboxing world champion, and Ken HORAN (Galway – Republic of Ireland), middleweight amateur world champion, will be participating at the demonstration and all four will be carrying out kickboxing demonstrations on the boxing ring at the Place des Nations.
Entrance is free, and open to all.
