In 1976, the Ermakov martial arts school was created in Kislovodsk, and in 1989, the city Martial Arts Federation was registered, which developed its own extreme version of hand-to-hand combat – FCF.
At the end of 1999, the Stavropol Regional Federation was registered, and after that, the Federation of the South of Russia in Full Contact Fighting.
In Russia, FCF has become widespread mainly in the south and in the European part of the country.
Since February 2003, we began to hold international competitions, championships and championships of the CIS.
At the end of 2003, in Kislovodsk, by decision of representatives of 8 countries, an international federation of the IF FCF was established and 3 years later it was registered with the Ministry of Justice of Russia.
From that moment, the more intensive work of the federation began, the opening of IF FCF branches in the CIS countries, in India, Iran, Portugal, Nigeria, France, Jamaica.
Over the past 20 years, a unique FCF style has been formed, recognizable by the manner of fighting, by the way of refereeing and by the peculiarities of organizing and holding competitions.
The International Federation and our FCF style are well known and respected by martial arts fans all over the world.
Many of our students have become MMA stars and perform in the best promotions in the world, such as: Khabib Nurmagomedov, Nikita Mikhailov, Rustam Khabilov, Albert Tumenov, Shamil Zavurov, Salimgerey Rasulov, Bagautdin Abbasov and many others.
And more importantly, a wonderful team of professional coaches, judges and leaders has been created, which are the basis and pride of the federation.
