    New York Mixed Martial Arts - Feature Film





    The Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York is very pleased to announce that the film we have been working on with Kahleem Poole - Tejada for nearly a year now, New York MMA, has been accepted as an Official Selection in the First Annual Bronx Week Film Festival!

    This is a momentous occasion for MMA in New York as we have struggled to reach the mainstream media with our message that MMA needs to be legalized and regulated in our state. This festival offers an excellent opportunity to reach average New Yorkers, the New York political elite, and promote the sport we love in a fair and balanced light.

    This first annual festival runs in tandem with Bronx Week. Olympia Film Locations, Inc has been tasked by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr, to establish, coordinate, and manage this new festival. The Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York is honored to be a part of it.

    Bronx Week runs from May 12th - 22nd and concludes with the Bronx Ball, a black tie fundraiser for the Bronx Overall Community Development Corporation, on Saturday May 21st. The film festival will run from May 16th - 19th, with a concluding gala on the 19th. The top three films will be honored.

    New York MMA, is currently scheduled to open the festival on Monday, May 16th!

    For more information on Bronx Week, how to buy tickets for this festival and how to support the Bronx Overall Community Development Corporation stay tuned to this page:

    We will continually update the film's web page and Facebook fan page with the latest information, websites, and news regarding the Bronx Week Film Festival.

    New York Mixed Martial Arts
    (Kahl One Film Productions & The Coalition to Legalize MMA in NY, 2011)

    New York MMA is an enthralling documentary that provides a back seat view of the grass roots struggle to legalize and regulate the professional sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) in New York State. New York is one of a handful of states in which MMA is still outlawed; sacrificing jobs and millions of dollars in revenue to neighboring states and countries since 1997. In his first feature length film, Bronx native, martial artist and filmmaker Kahleem Poole – Tejada presents an intimate account of the struggle to legalize MMA through the lens of one amateur fighter’s (Bradley Desir) quest to turn professional under the guidance of his coach (Stephen Koepfer). Viewers are offered a rare glimpse behind the curtain of the political, sometimes frightening, and always exciting world of mixed martial arts.

    Had our press screening last night! Reviews are starting to come it:

    "New York Mixed Martial Arts shows the audience the fiery yet kind heart of the sport's culture and dares them not to like it."
    - Peter Lampasona, US Combat Sports
    http://uscombatsports.com/index.php?...768&Itemid=325

    "It is a rare glimpse inside MMA, but it is a gem at the same time because it will open your eyes and help you understand that this sport is so much more than punches, kicks, and choke holds."
    -Shawn Baran, TheGarv.com
