Endorsement by Newly Certified Referee and ELITE MMA Referee: Kent Maichle!
"Michael... wanted to give you an update on my journey and a big thanks for the knowledge you make available to people at a great price.
This year Wisconsin became the 43rd state to regulate MMA. 9/1 the regulations took effect, and tomorrow night Combat USA will be hosting the first State officiated show in Green Bay. I will be participating in the show as a shadow to the Inspectors, located in one of the locker rooms, viewing hand wraps, initialing water bottles etc. I'm excited to be part of this historic weekend in Wisconsin.
As a Black Belt in Karate and 4 years experience in BJJ I was very interested in supported MMA in WI. I spoke with my politicians to pass the bill, and shortly after was given the opportunity to attend a Ref/Judging course in Milwaukee. This was hosted by Herb Dean and Sal D'Amato at Duke Roufus' Gym.
Leading up to the Judge/Ref Exam I wanted to take my knowledge to the next level, so I enrolled in your Elite MMA Online Workshop. I CRUSHED through the material in less than 8 days trying to prepare, and go from avid fan to educated professional.
Recently I received communication and certificates from Herb Dean informing me that I passed both the Referee and Judge exams. I've also become aware that less than 40% of the attendees were able to pass the exam. I DIRECTLY associate my readiness to the material covered in your online resources and wanted to send a big thank you for helping me achieve my goals!
Thanks again for doing what you do,
Director's note: We'd like to thank Kent for his awesome letter and let him know how thrilled we are to have him as a graduating student! And did we mention that we're honored he's a part of ELITE MMA Referees?! We'd like to think Kent couldn't have made it without us, but the truth is, he worked hard, studied the material, and finished his Quizzes and Final Exam in record time...so we weren't surprised to learn he'd passed and gotten Certified! We asked Kent to share a bit of his experiences during his first ref'ing gig.
