WFM World Federation of Elite Martials Arts – World President
ZONA DO ESPORTE: Mr. Mike, what was the objective of create WFM, When and where its happened?
MIKE: the reason I started wfm was because, having previously been world director for Wmo and world Vice President for wkf I felt both presidents had no belief that kickboxing would ever get to the olympics nd when I asked Roy baker Vice President for wako he said it would take at least 20/30 years that’s if it ever gets there ~ so I decided I would start wfm and try to help get it there , I went to Dubai nd asked sultan to be Vice President nd Dietrich from USA to be director and that’s where we started off , another reason was the unfair decisions and nothing going back to the competitors….
