SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA / ACCESSWIRE / May 28, 2024 / Alta Global Group (NYSE American:MMA), a pioneering technology company dedicated to transforming the landscape of martial arts and combat sports training, proudly announces the ongoing success of its partnership with City Kickboxing (CKB) in Auckland, New Zealand, home to MMA superstar Israel Adesanya and renowned coach Eugene Bareman. This collaboration continues to revolutionize the training landscape, fostering a new generation of MMA enthusiasts through the Alta Warrior Training program.

The Alta Warrior Training program has been very beneficial for CKB, one of the Southern Hemisphere's most celebrated gyms. Under the expert guidance of Eugene Bareman, over 800 warriors have transitioned from beginners to cage-ready fighters. Each 20-week program regularly attracts more than 100 participants, significantly boosting gym memberships. This surge in demand has prompted CKB to plan a move to larger premises to accommodate the growing interest.

New Zealand is experiencing exponential growth in MMA and UFC interest, becoming one of the top markets for UFC pay-per-view sales with annual growth of 20-30%, according to a statement by UFC's Head of International Development.

The Alta Warrior Training program at CKB serves as the entry point for beginners eager to experience the thrill of MMA training and step into the cage. CKB Head Coach Eugene Bareman commented, "The Alta program has become one of my leading sources for attracting new members. Our regular Alta Finales serve as an incredible showcase for MMA in New Zealand, sparking interest and inspiring many to begin their martial arts journey."

CKB's Alta Finale has become a landmark event held twice a year, featuring over 80 Alta Warriors competing for the first time. These events highlight the transformative stories from program participants, such as Nikolai Mouraviev, who shared, "It's not an exaggeration to say this program literally changed my life. The discipline, physical training, and camaraderie of the Alta program helped reset my physical and mental state. I am proud of what I have achieved and who I have become through this program."

Eugene Bareman has joined the Alta ambassadorial team, providing invaluable guidance and content to support Alta's global expansion. This partnership extends beyond the gym, enhancing the overall impact of Alta's programs and initiatives.

Eugene Bareman commented, "The partnership with Alta has truly revolutionized our approach at City Kickboxing. The Alta Warrior Training program not only brings a structured pathway for aspiring fighters but also significantly boosts our community engagement and gym memberships. Watching participants transform both physically and mentally has been incredibly rewarding. This program is a testament to how strategic collaborations can create profound impacts in the martial arts and combat sports industry, and I am excited to see how Alta will continue to innovate as it expands globally."

Alta Founder and CEO Nick Langton added "Partnering with City Kickboxing and Eugene Bareman has been a remarkable journey. Their commitment to excellence and the transformative power of the Alta Warrior Training program have set a new standard in the industry. We are proud to partner with Eugene, one of the most esteemed MMA coaches in the world, and excited to continue this journey together to inspire the next generation of fighters."

CKB and Alta are currently recruiting warriors for the next program starting July 22, 2024. Alta's approach to enhancing customer onboarding, optimizing engagement, and increasing membership retention is designed to maximize revenue opportunities within the global martial arts and combat sports industry. Alta estimates each active gym partnership could produce an average of $88,000 in annual revenue if they run two Alta Programs each year (average 24 per program) and cross-sell the Alta Pass and Academy products. Alta has over 500 active gym partnerships and is targeting approximately 45,000 potential combat sports gym partners in the US as it expands its network globally.
