Moscow Centre of Martial Arts

The Complex

Moscow Centre of Martial Arts is the biggest in Europe unique complex equipped according to the international standards. It is assigned for training, international and Russian competitions on sambo, judo, wushu, karate and other types of martial arts as well as for concerts, presentations, exhibitions and cultural events.
The idea of the construction of MCMA suggested by two famous sportsmen – A.B. Shturmin, Honored Coach of Russia, and S.V.Tsiklauri, Merited Master of Sports, – was supported by the Moscow City Government as well as the METROPOL Group of Companies headed by the Company’s CEO M.V. Slipenchuk who is also the President of the Development of Martial Arts Foundation.

The facade of the MCMA building is adorned with the largest separate advertising structure – the Russian record book holder – a three-positional dynamic prismaboard with the total surface area of 348 m2.


MCMA is located in the south of Moscow, in Northern Chertanovo District with excellent transport accessibility. The Centre is at the intersection of Varshavskoye avenue and Sumskoy proezd, between Chertanovskaya and Yuzhnaya metro stations. Moreover, there is a park such as Bitsevsky forest near Complex. Proximity to natural space has a positive influence on ecological situation in the district.
The MCMA building is adjacent to the 21-storey business centre with retail and office areas, which successfully accompany infrastructure of the district.


The Centre is not only a place for trainings and sports competitions but also one of the city’s centres of activity, a favorite place for meeting and active leisure of the inhabitants of the capital of Russia.
The proximity to main transport highways (Varshavskoye avenue, Chertanovskaya street, Balaklavsky Prospect) as well as the developed network of public transport in the region make the Centre easy of access for the inhabitants of Moscow and Moscow region and turn it into one of the most important objects of social infrastructure of the city.
