2022 is shaping up to be a landmark year for the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation, and at the forefront of its mission, this year is a renewed focus on youth development. One of the most vital aspects of youth competition, especially in combat sports, is ensuring that officials and coaches have the proper training suited to modern times. The launch of the new youth development program will focus on establishing a program focused on the safe practice of MMA for those who participate in competitions but also for those who are involved for recreational purposes.
The program will be accessible through the IMMAF app, which will allow students to access workout plans outside of a gym. This way they can train from home and their parents can see their progress, which gives a feeling of openness to the program. Within the app are a series of drop-down menus and 0-100% sliders to indicate completion of each module before students can advance.
IMMAF Development Director Andrew Moshanov was present in Nottingham last weekend, overseeing the creation of video content to facilitate the in-app experience for athletes. Trojan Free Fighters coach Paul Sutherland was present with some of his students and their parents. Spending many hours creating this content throughout the weekend. Speaking on the content, Moshanov said:
“It was cool, very cool. We have a lot of video resources, we have a great app rating. There are around 300 moves on this app available to access. Also in this app there is a visible scale for parents and students to see. It means parents are involved. They can discuss, they can help their children. This gives him a feeling of openness and involvement.
