The California State Athletic Commission has taken a step which has received little publicity but is deserving of attention by the combative sports community. They have produced a series of videos focusing on fighter health and safety issues, namely acute traumatic brain injury, cumulative concussions and dangers of dehydration. With CTE being a potential reality in any contact sport these are important topics to understand.
If you are a combat sports fighter, trainer, manager or other stakeholder these videos are well worth your time to get up to speed on these important topics. With fighter safety being the primary reason for an Athletic Commission’s existence Andy Foster and the CSAC deserve a public thank you for a job well done in producing these insightful videos.
