Members of TEAM VAGHI endure physically grueling and mentally punishing work outs every day of the week. In addition, these fighters train with precise techniques that require extreme mental focus. It can be compared to playing a chess game in the middle of a boxing match.
Team Vaghi fighters compete professionally in the U. S., Brazil, & Japan. The majority of fighters have backgrounds in the military, law enforcement, boxing, wresting, and/or hold black belts in various martial arts.
