On the eve of Bruce Lee’s birthday, the Committee to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York State (CLMMANYS) will be holding a March in Albany, New York on Wednesday, November 26 calling for the legalization of Mixed Martial Arts.
Lou Neglia, former Martial Arts World Champion, film star, and owner of the Ring of Combat MMA promotion is bringing 10,000 kids involved with martial arts to march on New York’s capital on Wednesday.
Why are “karate kids” coming to the march? It seems Governor David Patterson, due to a 14 billion dollar deficit, has made a budget cut proposal that apparently is going to shut down a number of youth programs in the state.
