Wissam Abi Nader head coach at Tristar gym made his way to Germany, Berlin to attend the first seminar held by IMMAF that will allow amateur referees, instructors and judges to get their official licenses. This event will be taking place in Charlottenburg, Berlin, Germany under the IMMAF banner. Abi Nader was picked by officials to represent Lebanon and will be joining 32 representatives from other countries in an effort to spread the sport and legalize it all over the world. It seems he is the only Arab attendee which raises attention to a very important issue. The seminar will be held by Marc Goddard, Herb Dean, and the IMMAF President, Mr. Bertrand Amoussou.
