The first task of the Technical committee was to investigate best practice around the world and work out a framework for amateur MMA rules for the IMMAF will recommend. The IMMAF rule set for Amateur MMA will be used in the World Championships, but it will be optional for members to adopt them or not in their own country.
Having finished working on the rule set, the technical committee will start investigating 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. Again, these will not be mandatory regulations; this will be done for the purpose of supporting the member countries in their work on ensuring health and safety.
