BIO

Gabriel Varga has been training in Martial Arts since he was 8 years old and in 2014 was awarded his 4th degree black belt in Karate. Gabriel is a full time competitive kickboxer and a part time instructor specializing in seminars abroad, for adults, and martial arts classes, for children, in Victoria, B.C.        

He began his kickboxing career at age 20 and shortly after travelled to Thailand where he spent 3 months training. He has competed in Canada, America, United Arab Emirates, Italy, China, Japan, and Austria. During that time he has fought for the world's two premier kickboxing organizations, GLORY and K-1. Gabriel first signed with GLORY Kickboxing in 2013 and has completed 3 year long contracts with them. In 2014 he won the four man contender tournament in Los Angeles earning him a title shot. The following year he won the inaugural GLORY Featherweight Title in Dubai and in 2016 he captured it for a second time in Virginia on Glory 32.  In 2017 Gabriel signed with Bellator and close to a year later won the kickboxing Featherweight Title in Rome in a long anticipated bout against Kevin Ross.  He has since defended the title twice and has also had 2 MMA fights with Bellator.               

 


Gabriel lives and trains in Victoria, Canada and is planning on opening his own gym within the next couple years where he can continue to train for fights and instruct martial arts classes for adults and children.

VARGA BROS. GYM

Martial arts in the Varga household is a family affair. Gabriel has dedicated the past 10 years to being a competitive kickboxer and athlete. His brother Aaron, who had an amateur career and was undefeated, has been one of his trainers and his head cornerman. Jacob, the youngest brother, is an active amateur boxer with over 30 fights who is living in Toronto so he can train with Lenox Lewis's former amateur coach. And finally their father, Keith, has been involved in Martial Arts for over 40 years and was the first karate instructor for Gabriel, Aaron, and Jacob.

Together the Varga family will open Vargabros Martial Arts and bring Victoria world class instruction.
