The event will see an array of celebrities and dignitaries from all over the World coming to support SAMBO as a potentially new Olympic sport. Zara Phythian, TV actor, TV presenter, choreographer, Martial Arts practitioner, (...the list is endless) is one of them also we have Oleg Taktarov
One of Europe's most decorated and highly revered female Martial Artists, Zara Phythian, a former 13 times multi-style sports Martial Arts Champion, is now one of the UK's most exciting talents working in Film, TV, Motion Capture, Music Video and live presentation.
Zara was actually spotted in the USA whilst she was competing and winning 4 US National Belt Titles at one event. She was hired as an actress and returned to the US for an independent Sci Fi movie, where Zara found the 'actor bug' and retired from International competition to follow and study a continued career as a unique actress, with the looks of a leading lady and the skills that set her apart.
