Jesper Gunnarson was elected as a member of the Technical committee today at the IMMAF board meeting. The Swede has previous experience, such as a Member of the Board of the Swedish MMA Federation and the Chairman of the Board for the Swedish Shootfighting Federation. The decision was unanimous. Gunnarson joins member Mark Goddard and chairman Marc Ratner on the Technical committee. The committee is tasked to investigate best practice around the world and work out a framework for amateur MMA rules that the IMMAF will recommend. The technical committee will also investigate and formulate recommendations for rules in recreational MMA and policies for the safe progression from one level to the next, from when a practitioner first starts to train MMA all the way to the top professional level.
