Indian Combat Sports Academy also known as ICSA is a famous Indian Mixed Martial Arts team. It is a home for some top Indian athletes. ICSA has successfully nurtured multiple talents from grass root level and currently ICSA is a home for multiple champions. ICSA is widely regarded as India’s top training institute for combat sports mainly focused on creating some upcoming young athletes.
Majority of the athletes in ICSA are from very humble backgrounds and the training in ICSA was free of cost. Also ICSA was taking care of monetary requirements of these athletes so that they can manage their expenses at the same time they can work towards their dream by training 6 hours a day.
Amid COVID the ICSA centers have been shut down for a brief period and is not able to operate because of financial debts and operational constraints and now the athletes don’t have any training centre to train in.
Because of the centres being closed there is no income for the athletes and they are finding it difficult to survive in the city like Bangalore and majority of the athletes have left the city to their villages and are there without any income or training. An athlete cannot be without training for such a long time. It will drastically put them out of form.
WHY WE ARE RAISING FUNDS
To survive this situation we are moving out of the main city and are building a facility in the outskirts where this athletes can train and at the same time we are providing them vocational training programs. We have created a talent list of our athletes which are essential requirement for many jobs and the programs we want to facilitate will hone these basic skills to get available jobs in the market.
