Sport Martial Arts Book: A Vision for a Professional Fighting League: Local Fighters, Team Owners, and Fans
This sport martial arts book, will, explain, how there is, and always has been, a problem in the world of professional fighting: Unlike almost any other sport, a single entity controls the players. In boxing, a single notorious promoter almost ruined the sport (and arguably did) with the way he managed and controlled matches and fighters. Now, in the booming sport of mixed martial arts (MMA), the leading brands control the match ups and, in the case of the International Fight League, own the teams.
The National Martial Arts League is a new league-based fighting organization based on exactly this concept. In this league, local owners build teams with as many local point fighters as possible, in order to gain the support of local fans. The sport martial arts book provides detail about the league structure being like a franchise, and seeks entrepreneurs with financial staying power to own and build successful teams.
In contrast, the top sports franchises of our day– the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL– all succeeded based on local teams, local owners, and local fans working together to create something larger and greater than a single owner ever could. In this league, local owners build teams with as many local fighters as possible, in order to gain the support of local fans. The brand equity of the league will grow as fans support their local teams towards the play-offs and inter-league title/all-star events. In addition to putting on league events in their geographies, team owners are free to experiment with different concepts, including professional and amateur fights, tournaments, and different types of fighting formats (i.e., grappling, wrestling, stand up combat, boxing, and other formats that become popular).
