EBMAS in Italy are planning WT tournaments-what do you guys think?:
Dear Ebmas & all families of WT friends,
I’m very happy to announce ufficially that finally there will exist in Ebmas in a short time the possibility to compete using WT techniques in dedicated sport contest.
I’ve dedicated many months on behalf of Sifu Emin to the problem of creating an efficient system of regulations.
We think that thanks to “SPORTWT” is possible to create better WT martial artist and promote the diffusion of our loved art.
I know that many people (which have big economic interest in the preservation of the actual situation of WT, where students spend a life for learn the system paying a lot for learn “secret advanced” technicques) will criticize this approach with every weapon.
To persons in good faith, who simply are told from year and years “WT is too much dangerous for sport competitions”, I’m at your disposal to answer to all your questions and doubts or critics.
Pleas just USE A VERY ELEMENTAR AND EASY ENGLISH (or Italian) LANGUAGE and be patient some time because I don’t’have much time for go internet.
Now I’d like only to tell a very important concept:We don’t’ want to change the classic WT (or better, as we call, the scientific WT): in the sport contest only “pure” technicques are valid (no jumping, no side guards, no body weight or shoulder forward…).
In a very limitated way (only 5x round) are admitted MMA (=mixed martial arts: karate, thay, judo, brazialian jiu jitsu…) attacks (not also defenses! We want use the WT original defensive strategies and techniques ) because we want prepare WT students to deal also with other style attacks: it’ important both for self defense (nobody in the streets will attack you with chatsao-punch or double punches, but they can give you a roundhouse kick or attempt a takedown) and for a future MMA participation of our fighters.
I know that the first matches will be caotical, confused, ruffled, not beautiful to watch and not good technically. This is only because in WT only few practise free sparring. There will be fights that end with a KO only for one kick in abdomen or for a knee in quadriceps, because many have never really took a hit. Ther will be athletes that finish without breath after only 20 seconds of chain punches. But after some time our level will grow enormously and we’ll become all much better than now.
A big hug, Antonio
