MMA Referee/Judge Training in NYC!
If you're anywhere within reasonable distance of NYC, or don't mind driving or having the TSA touch your fiddly bits, then listen up folks. SamboSteve, otherwise known as the President of the American Sambo Association, has organized an ABC certified training course for people who'd like to judge or referee MMA fights.
And he's set up a special deal for Bullshido members: 25% off the course until Feb 10th.
The Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York is proud to bring you an Association of Boxing Commissions approved MMA judge and referee training course instructed by Robert Hinds (veteran referee, judge and ABC certified trainer) and Sean Wheelock (veteran referee and Bellator color commentator)!
This is the first time this training has ever been offered in New York State.
This course is suitable for aspiring coaches, fighters, MMA journalists and fans. Whether you want to simply educate yourself, better understand our sport, or or want to pursue work as a professional MMA referee or judge, this course is for you.
The course will be given at: Tiger Martial Arts. 3058 Hempstead Turnpike. Levittown, NY
