Petition Tag - american amateur mixed martial arts
An Order of Emergency Suspension was served against American Amateur Mixed Martial Arts, based on inaccuracies and false allegations from The Florida State Boxing Commission and the Department of Business and Professional and Regulation.
They say that AAMMA is unethical and unsafe. For all that have EVER been a part of AAMMA, you know this to be untrue. Please sign this petition in your support of AAMMA.
Due to the ignorance of the inspectors of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation and the Florida State Boxing Commission, they say that we;
1) had a weight difference between 2 minors of 30 lbs. We have video and paperwork to prove otherwise.
2) They say one of the athletes in the same match was knocked out. There was never even one punch thrown in the match and the athlete tapped out by submission.
3) That we allowed strikes to the head of a grounded opponent at events in Crestview on May 6th, 2011, in Panama City on July 16th, 2011 and in Tallahassee on August 13th, 2011. We have video of these events and can prove otherwise.
4)That AAMMA allowed minors to compete in Mixed Martial Arts. AAMMA's minors compete in Modified Martial Arts where they are only allowed to Kickbox when standing and Grappling only while on the ground while wearing full safety gear. We have video proof of this as well. AAMMA is the only non-profit educational/sanctioning organization of its kind in the state of Florida.
Please help us to fight this injustice for all of our registered student athletes, instructors, officials and volunteers all of which give many hours of their time and effort.
