Miomir Vujovic – Luxemburg

The heartwarming passion of Miomir Vujovic inspires others to go above and beyond with his inspirational example of combining MMA with social work.

10 years ago he created the Streetsport Project providing free martial arts classes so that young and disadvantaged people can be guaranteed access to the sport of MMA and its core disciplines. Testimonies from participants have described success in overcoming personal issues and bullying as a result, with others progressing to develop competitive MMA careers and achieve on the IMMAF platform.

While serving as president of the Luxembourg MMA Federation, he has contributed personal financial investment for athlete participation fees, ensuring that Luxembourg is represented by its dedicated and talented athletes.

Educational video: MMA in Context

The International MMA Federation (IMMAF) has released its latest educational video: MMA in Context.

As an educational tool for Mixed Martial Arts, the feature has been produced with a layman audience in mind and aims to correct misconceptions, misinformation and prejudices surrounding use of the caged competition area and aspects of the sport’s ground game: working from the bottom position, stoppages and referee presence, etc.

IMMAF Regulatory Affairs consultant, Marc Goddard, talks through the safety and technical elements of the ‘cage’ and groundwork in Amateur MMA – two defining elements of the sport. [Video by Michael Morgan]
