ONE Championship And Bruce Lee Foundation Team Up For ONE Fight Night 10 And AAPI Heritage Month Integrations
ONE Championship™ (ONE), the world’s largest martial arts organization, today announced that it is partnering with the Bruce Lee Foundation ahead of ONE’s first on-ground U.S. event on May 5 — ONE Fight Night 10: Johnson vs. Moraes III. The partnership will honor Lee’s lasting legacy and impact on martial arts on the 50th anniversary of his passing, and serve to recognize AAPI Heritage Month and Mental Health Awareness Month.
First, ONE will be making a private donation to the Foundation’s summer camp for underprivileged youth, which supports their development through an integrated Mind, Body, Spirit approach to mental wellness. ONE will also donate a portion of proceeds from exclusive ONE x Bruce Lee merchandise sold on-ground at ONE Fight Night 10.
In addition, ONE and the Bruce Lee Foundation will be collaborating on co-branded content pieces featuring Lee’s archived footage and the stars of ONE Fight Night 10. Shannon Lee, daughter of the late martial arts legend, will also be taking part in the festivities in Denver, Colorado for ONE Fight Night 10.
Chatri Sityodtong, Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, stated: “Bruce Lee is an icon in the martial arts and AAPI communities, looked up to and revered by millions. The impact he’s had on the world will live forever. ONE was built on the same values held by the Bruce Lee Foundation, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with them ahead of our historic U.S. event.”
Shannon Lee, Board Chair of the Bruce Lee Foundation, stated: “I’m moved that ONE has decided to support the Bruce Lee Foundation as part of their historic, first-ever U.S. event. The expansion of our relationship to include making Bruce Lee’s practices of inner strength, martial arts and wellness accessible to today’s youth is the best kind of celebration of my father’s legacy during this 50th anniversary year that I could wish for.”
ONE Fight Night 10: Johnson vs. Moraes III will broadcast live on Friday, May 5 exclusively on Prime Video in the U.S. and Canada. The global broadcast will air in over 170 countries around the world.
The Bruce Lee Foundation (BLF) is a not-for-profit organization that provides access to Bruce Lee’s ideas and teachings to enhance personal growth and spread harmony.
