COMMAND Judges Course Coming to Edmonton
‘Big’ John McCarthy’s COMMAND course to certify MMA judges is coming to Edmonton. The Edmonton Combative Sports Commission has annouced that they are bringing ‘Big’ John and his Certification of Officials for Mixed Martial Arts National Development program to the Alberta capital on October 2nd and 3rd.
Chairman Pat Reid had this to say about the program,
It is so difficult to get MMA judges certified by a quality instructor/course. In my estimation the best course is the John McCarthy COMMAND course for MMA judges and his other course for MMA referees. The Edmonton Combative Sports Commission, which considers the McCarthy COMMAND course to be the best available certification program for MMA judges, has been able to secure a commitment from John McCarthy to teach the COMMAND MMA judging course here in Edmonton OCTOBER 2-3, 2010.
Not only will the course improve the officiating skills of current Edmonton judges, but the course is being opened to the public. Individuals looking to become certified judges are welcome to attend the two day course for $500.
There have been a lot of complaints with judging lately, Top MMA News applauds any commission who is looking to improve the quality of officiating in the sport.
