About the WFMC GB President
Wayne Edwards AKA Master E was a British team coach since 2004 and to be offered the chance to be head of a National association was an amazing opportunity and a huge learning curve. Wayne is a huge believer in doing things differently however he quickly learnt the value of tried and tested after his first year of being president.
In 2013 he ran his first squad training and squad selections which created a spark of interest for individuals looking for something new. At the end of the year he brought a team over to Germany for the first time and had some good results of which he brought back several World Champions. It was painfully obvious on his first visit that there was some stiff competition in the Semi contact and light contact sections as well as MMA, Muay Thai, Submission wresting, K1 and kickboxing sections so the following year he needed some more big guns . 2014 the team had doubled and so had the medal haul in Croatia as they came back with even more Golds.
2015 WFMC held its first British Championships and 2016 his second British Championships at West Bromwich leisure centre and Finally held his first
World Championships in Manchester October 2016.
2017 is going to be a Great year!

Wayne Edwards runs his own associaiton for Krav Maga and operates under the Israeli IKA under grand master Moshe Galisko. Wayne is of the belief World class competitors and instructors can provide a better representation of Krav Maga than the present trend of zeros to heros who do 21 day courses and then placed in hired halls and still claim they are the best yet never facing much hand to hand combat wether sporting or not.
Not only is Wayne pationate of sporting combatants teaching Krav Maga self defence but he know it is the key for martial arts school to increase their adult memebrship which is predominately young people.
