What do you get?
Officially, the Red Dragon Martial Arts Club was founded in 2003 by Maciej Michalak and Bartosz Jezierski, who were also instructors at the time. Until 2005, it was a one-section club and specialized in Olympic Taekwondo, and rented the hall for the section from Primary School No. 36 on Słowackiego Street. Even then the athletes of the club were successful in national and international competitions.
In 2005 the club changed its seat and until 2008 it used the hall rented from the bankrupt Modena clothing factory at ul.Jackowskiego, where it significantly expanded its activity by kick boxing, Thai boxing, judo and mma sections. During this period, the club gained enormous popularity and renown, and the name Czerwony Smok (Red Dragon) became widely known to the majority of young people in Poznań who came into contact with combat sports. Many fighters contributed to this, winning the highest trophies in national and international competitions. The most important ones include: Bartosz Lewandowski, Damian Gajewski, Natalia Skwarek (member of the Olympic taekwondo team), Przemysław Lis, Szymon Wachowiak, Jacek Felisiak, Mateusz Każmierczak, Marcin Wieczorek, Łukasz Szulc, Radosław Szyguła, Eryk Rzeszutek, Krystian Czelewicz – competitors and Polish champions in kick boxing and Thai boxing.
After another change of the hall’s location in 2008, the club created even better training conditions for the players in the almost 300-metre hall. At 6 Bóżnicza Street the fighters had a small floor ring and parts of a cage at their disposal. Sections were created in Wągrowiec and Szamotuly thanks to Maciej Wysocki, which function to this day, training young people to reach for the highest results.
In the years 2008-2013 the club reached for the highest trophies: Wojtek Zbierajewski – Muay Thai WMF World Champion, Leonard Pociask – IFMA European Cup bronze medalist.
The year 2013 was not the easiest one, as the club was forced to change the location twice. Another hall rented from the bankrupt Modena plant, and after six months a change to the former AWF gym in Wilson Park. At that time, thanks to working with Piotr Sawiński, Joanna Socha won the Junior K1 European Championship.
In 2014 new perspectives open up for the club, and thanks to sponsors we manage to open a hall by Lake Malta with a cage, crossfit section (affiliated) and a gym, where we hope the club will settle permanently.
We would like to thank all the players and trainers who were not mentioned and all those who participated in the life of the club, contributing to its image today.
