    I did read your posts first. That should be pretty obvious bearing in mind I quoted them.

    As for the "no", that is not what your policy seems to indicate with the requirement of a dan grade.

    No one has questioned the man, they've questioned the organisation. We're free to do so.

    I still don't understand why people have to start being teachers without going through the process of being a student first. Seems these guys are teaching grapping already even though they've only just started training?

    That's great, but the previous posts seem to indicate that guys with a dan grade in an art are being certified as MMA instructors. Is this correct?

    What is the minimum level of grappling knowledge required for someone to become an MMA instructor under WAKO?

    Dan.. Do you think that anyone should be able to teach MMA?

    or would you prefer to learn from anybody?

    All we are doing is setting a standard within "WAKO" to meet insurance requirements.

    Its not compulsory to be a wako member to fight or teach, if you are happy to go with another instructor, then fine, do that.

    most of the people that are attending our courses are long serving kickboxing instructors and thai instructors who wish to transision to mma, or develop another side to their gyms existing syllabus.
