LUTA LIVRE translated means free fight.

This Brazilian self-defense method was brought to Germany in 1995 by the master Daniel D’Dane.

Since then, this system has become an integral part of the German martial arts scene and is enjoying steady growth throughout Europe.

The main goal is to shift the fighting action from a standing position to the ground and to finish it there by means of leverage and strangle techniques.

Due to the high effectiveness of the system, the implementation of punching and kicking techniques is possible without any problems and exactly for this reason LUTA LIVRE also enjoys a high popularity in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts).

The first SPARTA LUTA LIVRE team (SPARTA Essen) was founded in 2006 in the heart of the Ruhr area and has achieved massive success, especially in the areas of competition and competitive sports.

This team has thus promoted the spread of LUTA LIVRE and has been able to win with its athletes, among others, the prestigious title of the German Grappling Championship twice (DGL Team Champion 2010 + 2017) as well as various German Champion individual titles (men and women).

Furthermore, this first SPARTA LUTA LIVRE team was extremely successful in the field of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) and was able to achieve a variety of victories as well as several professional titles of major events.
