Warmest greetings from Dubai Martial Arts Academy!
First and foremost, I would like to say that I’m really glad to see that martial arts in the region are developing with a light speed, and that more and more people are into sports now. That is good indicator, and I’m sure it shows good perspectives for further improvements and building strong and healthy society.
It’s the beginning of March, and I would like to remind all of you about the amazing MMA tournament called Abu Dhabi Fighting Championship (ADFC) where skilled fighters from different parts of the world show their professionalism, and where they have a chance to win Gran Prix which is also valuable for any person. I also want to thank main organizers of ADFC event, I SEE company, because it’s always a pleasure to work with someone responsible and get positive results from the collaboration. They are really professional in what they do.
I want to emphasize that Dubai Martial Arts Academy has achieved a lot for the past few years by creating new corporate culture that helps to become partners with all companies seen as competitors before. Therefore, we don’t see any competition with other promoters of martial arts in the region. On the contrary, we are open for any kind of partnership and co-promotion with these companies, even when it comes to creating totally new joint projects.
I’m, together with my team, sure that any martial-arts-related events happening in MENA region bring lots of values to the development of this field here as well as global development of martial arts, and we believe that the overall success of our efforts is more important than the improvement of each specific kind of martial arts. At the end of the day we all try to achieve same results – martial arts recognition and healthy society worldwide.
That’s good to know that each local promoter has its own partners and sponsors to deal with – there’s no confrontation of interests in there, because there are always opportunities to work together and share networks, fighters, PR activities, etc.
Today I can say that Dubai Martial Arts Academy starts achieving more values by the corporate culture it has as well as activities it provides. As we are transparent with our audience and followers, we always share our statistics with you. According to that our database for online newsletter distribution has already reached the level of 40,000 people, and the number of unique views of the website per month is 15,000.
I believe that that is only the beginning of our improvements, and I can ensure that we are always glad to share our success with our partners, supporters and co-promoters. Only together we can do a lot to build a healthy nation!
