MB Commission Offering MMA Judge Training to Public
What’s the biggest problem in MMA these days? If you watch a Leonard Garcia fight, you would probably answer “Judging”. The Manitoba Boxing Commission will be looking to address judging issues by bringing “Big” John McCarthy back to Winnipeg to teach his COMMAND course for Mixed Martial Arts Judging officials.
The two day course will be held over the weekend of January 22-23 and will be available to
- any current official of a combative sports commission,
- anyone looking to become an MMA judge or commission member
- anyone wanting to learn more about MMA
Joel Fingard, the Executive Director of the Manitoba Boxing Commission, commented on why the MBC is bringing the course back to Winnipeg for the second time.
The Manitoba Boxing Commission is bringing back the Big John McCarthy COMMAND training and certification course for the second time since November 2009 to continue to provide training to its current officials and open up the opportunity to others who may be interested in becoming an official or who have a general interest in the sport. The Manitoba Boxing Commission strongly believes in ongoing training for all of its officials. We provide ongoing training opportunities including certifications for officials in the sport of MMA and Boxing. We have and will continue to bring to Manitoba some of the top officials and courses in North America.
The cost of the two day course is $400. If you are interested, click on this link for further information ( MBC – McCarthy COMMAND MMA Course Jan 2011)
