I Like Fight for a Life.

We host Kickboxing Events to raise money for charitable organizations who are saving lives.
My name is Preston Hocker. Some people call me the “Pastor of Disaster”. I’m an associate pastor at my church in Virginia Beach but I also compete in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Kickboxing events. Last year we decided to join my passion for fighting with my passion to see lives saved and changed. We hosted our first Kickboxing event in August 2016 and with the money that we raised through ticket sales, concessions, and charitable donations from local businesses we were able to fund the drilling/building of three water wells for Pygmy tribes in Congo. Since the first event we’ve also been a part of funding the opening of a home for homeless children in Debre Markos, Ethiopia as well as sending disaster relief support for hundreds of families in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew. We exist to inspire fighters to fight for something that’s bigger than themselves.
