Last month GAMMA India conducted its first online international technical workshop and welcomed international participants as well.
Over 100 athletes, coaches, and technical officials attended from all over India and other countries. The Indian #mixedmartialarts community was represented and united under GAMMA.
Mr. Samit Bhat, GAMMA India’s President kicked off the event with a brief introduction of GAMMA, our values, and vision, laying the foundations for the development of #mixedmartialarts in India.
“Our objective is to empower the Indian #mixedmartialarts community, providing a sustainable and inclusive platform for the development of young athletes, judges, referees, and mixed martial arts enthusiasts”, said Mr. Bhat.
Although the Indian #mixedmartialarts community is pretty small compared to its population, its potential is already notable as demonstrated in Singapore during the last GAMMA World Championships.
The technical workshop was conducted by the GAMMA India Technical Committee which is made up of Mr. Jitendra Khare, Mr. Susovan Ghosh, and Mr. Anrew Canday.
Following the success of this workshop, another run will take place on the 17th and 18th of October.
As the global governing body for amateur MMA, GAMMA works daily to improve the stewardship of the sport while developing it in a healthy, safe, and inclusive manner.
This gives all amateur mixed martial athletes the opportunity to fulfil their dreams and compete on the grandest sporting stage.
A five-year strategy has been launched through to 2024.
During this time, GAMMA will lead the drive towards a more competitive, entertaining, and meaningful MMA for athletes and fans.
GAMMA will create more opportunities for people and nations to enjoy MMA while increasing competitiveness at all levels.
This will include the development of exciting and engaging global events, working to attract new and diverse fans, and building long-term commercial and non-commercial partnerships.
GAMMA will continue to make considerable efforts to protect the integrity of the sport and develop initiatives that promote fair play, inclusion, gender equality and more.
